The Verbena Childcare Center is a school in Guatemala City. It also serves as the main campus of AMG Guatemala’s offices and operations. Verbena functions as a school and childcare center, ministering to hundreds of students from a neighborhood impacted by poverty, gang activity, drugs, alcoholism, and high crime. Over 50 teachers and staff provide education to students from kindergarten through 12th grade. In addition to a standard education, students also participate in daily devotions and Bible, computer, and English classes. Students have access to meals and low cost medical and dental services on campus. The expansive facilities of Verbena provide children with a safe place to play and offer many resources to parents as well.

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.
