Esperanza Juvenil helps motivated Guatemalan children in extreme poverty to meet their full potential and become men and women who will make a difference in their communities. We serve children from families who cannot support their basic needs. We provide these children with a loving, family-like group home environment, a high quality education year-round and support through university. We celebrate our youth as they become young adults with a solid education who can make a difference in their communities and country!
Please help a new group of eight year old Guatemalan children join our 3rd grade class this year! For each $1,000 raised, we can provide a child with a year of education. We are hoping to help 10 new children enter our 3rd grade class this year. With your support, 10 children can begin a new life journey toward reaching their goals! We will also send you updates on this class as they join Esperanza Juvenil and throughout their experience.
