GUATEMALA

THERE ARE 128 CHILDREN IN GUATEMALA HOPING FOR A SPONSOR LIKE YOU.

From 1960 to 1996, Guatemalans endured a civil war and various military-led regimes. The sustained conflict between wealthier Guatemalans of European descent and Indigenous Guatemalans living in poorer, rural areas led to tens of thousands of deaths. Today, Guatemalans face an unpredictable economy and governmental challenges such as lack of transparency and corruption.

VisionTrust started serving children in Guatemala in 2007. Through our two preschools and Learning Centers, we provide children with nutritious food, clean water, educational help, and most importantly, mentorship and spiritual discipleship from trusted adults. In a country with only a 26% high school graduation rate, our preschool programs lay the foundation for primary and secondary education completion. Since the public education alone system is insufficient, we host after-school programs for school-aged children. Our Learning Centers also offer a unique Long-Distance Education program, providing engaging and accessible secondary education opportunities for adolescents.

Our Local Leader

When Rut Chamale de Monterroso graduated college in 2007, God gave her the desire to serve children living in poverty in her own country. Her heart broke when she realized that children in disadvantaged Mayan communities didn’t have dreams for their future. For over a decade, Rut has lived out her own dream of helping Guatemalan children have hope for tomorrow by experiencing God’s transformative love. Rut is married to her husband Kenny, and they have a son named Ignacio.
