Beberly is a sweet young girl living with her parents and sister. They live in a small and poor village in a rural, warm area of Guatemala. Beberly is a good student and her favorite class is Spanish. She would like to become a veterinarian when she grows up! In her spare time, she likes to play riding her bicycle and to read stories. Her mother is a housewife and her father is retired from Guatemala’s national police. He works now in the fields planting coffee to earn more money, but his income is not enough to provide for Beberly’s needs, including education. By partnering with AMG, you help meet Beberly’s deepest needs by providing nutritious food, a good education, and most importantly, teaching from the Bible!
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.
