Andres is a boy studying in the second grade. He lives with his mother in a rural area of Guatemala. His father left them some time ago, and his mother works as a cook in a restaurant. She works hard every day to provide for their needs, but her income is not enough. Andres likes to play with his friends, and his favorite subject is math. He says that he would like to become a policeman one day. Andres and his mother are very grateful for the opportunities Andres has through the sponsorship program. Thank you!

Getsemani Childcare Center
The Getsemani Child Development Center is a place where children experience the love of Christ. The local church provides the center with materials, furniture and the equipment needed to function efficiently. At the center, children receive a quality education and nutritious meals. Children also regularly participate in songs of worship and biblical readings. Finally, staff teach biblical truths and disciple children in their walks with Christ.
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.
