Yalu Nim Jay Childcare Center

The Yalu Nim Jay Child Development Center began in response to a community affected by malnourishment. Children eat lunch each day as prepared by the staff. They also receive a general education as well as values formation and life skills training. The staff mentor and tutor children who need additional care. Lastly, children grow as disciples of Christ as the staff lead devotions, teach Bible classes, and lead in praise and worship.

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.
