Oratorio Child Development Center
The Oratorio Child Development Center serves children in the small city of Oratorio in Guatemala. At the center, children attend general education classes in addition to learning life skills. Staff provide the children with nutritious meals each day. Every week teachers share from God’s Word in devotion time in addition to leading Bible classes. Since many children do not attend church, the center also participates in evangelistic events such as summer camp each year.
Guatemala is the most populated country in Central America. The majority religion is Christianity and is primarily Roman Catholic. Families in Guatemala suffer from many difficult circumstances such as drug use, alcoholism, physical violence, broken homes, and malnourishment. Often children are forced to begin working at an early age. Many families are extremely poor, live in small dilapidated homes and don’t make enough to provide for their physical needs.
