The children in our sponsorship program are orphaned, abandoned, or come from extremely poor families who are eager to escape from the poverty that has trapped their family for generations. The GOD’S CHILD Project’s philosophy is that through education and formation, together we can “break the bitter chains of poverty.”
Presently, there are 4,000 boys and girls in The GOD’S CHILD Project in Guatemala. Once they are a part of us, they stay in the program until they choose to discontinue their education. As a result, the Project’s children range from preschool through university level. We pay bus fare and school fees for these boys and girls, and buy their school uniforms, books and supplies. In addition, we provide children and their families with other essentials such as food, medical and dental care, crisis intervention counseling, clothing, and lots of loving structure on which they depend while they battle the dynamics of poverty.
On average, it costs us about US$60 a month for each child in primary school, and US$120 a month for each child in junior high school or high school. These children and their families need to take their studies seriously, and we ask that children maintain a B average. We also teach parents the value of education so the whole family takes the child’s studies seriously.
We ask you to help sponsor children with an amount within your budget. Unlike almost all other charities, we do not set a fixed amount to sponsor a child. We know that some people can give more, and others less. We appreciate all sponsorships very much.
