Isaias is a sweet little boy in Guatemala who lives with his mother, brother, grandparents, and uncle. Isaias loves art class and dreams of becoming a professional cartoonist! His favorite sport is soccer. Before Isaias was born, his father was robbed and killed by gang members. Gang violence as well as drug and alcohol addictions are still present in Isaias’ community, so his mother’s greatest desire is for Isaias to receive a good education in a safe place. AMG’s student center helps provide Isaias with nutritious food, Biblical teaching, and an education. Thank you for investing in Isaias’ future!
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.
