Education is crucial to a 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 6 years of our existence, we've operated out of a rented facility whose owners from time to time would give us a deadline to leave. We couldn't make improvements or add classrooms without them belonging to the landlord and there was no room for growth. Recently God provided us an option to purchase a 2 acre tract of land which also contains a well and a 2000 square foot house which we can use immediately for classrooms. It is right in the midst of the community we serve in Chimaltenango. Now all we need is the money to make that happen and build a fence to secure the property.

Board members and other friends have already contributed $100,000 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. We have 6 months or the owner sells it to a business. The growth and future of the children we serve depends on You!
