Education is crucial to escape poverty and grow leaders

We are committed to changing the culture in first one small village in Guatemala and then another and then another. How? By offering families who have never been able to afford to send a child to school, the opportunity to do so. How does that help? It gives them hope and the skills necessary to create a better life for themselves, their families and their communities.

For the first 7 years of our existence, we've operated out of a rented facility whose owners have now reclaimed that facility for their own use. Pastor Erika has converted her family living space into a temporary school for the 2021 school year and Covid-19 social distance requirements make it difficult to fit all 82 children in at the same time. We are looking for viable, affordable options in the region so the ministry can continue to grow.

Board members and other friends have already contributed $149,000 towards the $300,000 we need. Since we must pay cash to purchase land in Guatemala, I ask you to prayerfully consider how much you can donate and to spread the word so we can get this done. The growth and future of the children we serve depends on You!
