Matochos Child Development Center

The Matochos Child Development Center is located high in the eastern mountains of Guatemala. It is a very small farming community. The families here are among the poorest of the poor due to harsh economic conditions. Often children begin working at an early age as a means of survival, with little opportunity for a good education. After a massive earthquake devastated Guatemala in 1976, AMG began helping families in the area and in 1979 decided to establish the childcare center. Monday through Friday, children come while they are not at school to receive a hot lunch, participate in group activities, receive help with their school work, and hear God’s word. The staff at Matochos encourages the parents by doing home visits, Bible studies, workshops, and activities for the whole family. This shows God’s love and helps to improve family life.
