I’m part of a non-profit that supports a school on the railroad tracks of Guatemala city. The children aren’t allowed to go to the public schools because they live on the tracks. So some volunteers got together and started a school for the children. We will be there for the 7 yr. Anniversary of the school.
We have an adopt-a-teacher program (making sure the teacher’s receive some salary, so they can continue to teach the kids). We’re taking down a ton of donations/school supplies. Even in the economy that we’re in, people are still willing to give to those even less fortunate. For that I am grateful. The kids and the teachers will steal your heart…I promise! If you’re interested in helping or taking a trip down, please visit our website Friends of Guatemala.

This is such a wonderful calling, and I know it’s a blessing to be able to participate. One of the greatest gifts any child can have is an education. I’ll keep you in my prayers. Have fun!!>>-Hayley
What a wonderful cause! I traveled to Jamaica on a mission trip as a teen and it was eye opening to see how poverty is rampant in such beautiful places. Prayers for a safe trip! >>I’ll check out the link!

What a wonderful mission. We adopted our son from Guatemala 8 years ago. So scary to think of the life he might have had. God bless you and the children.
Take care of yourself and I’ll see you when you get home! xoxo
How awesome! We have a 3 year old daughter adopted from Guatemala, and I will never be the same after seeing the profound poverty in that country. >>I love your heart for the people of that country! Can’t wait to see the pictures from your trip! 🙂
