Due to Covid-19, Vida Schools are currently closed and the authorities in Guatemala have asked families to self-isolate
Teachers are continuing to connect with their students as they are able and sponsors are continuing to make an impact on their students’ lives
An investment of $50/month resources a class to provide the best education possible
Your support enables your class to receive an academic education and be taught to know and love the Lord!
What does my support provide?
In the rural areas of Guatemala, more than 75% of Indigenous people live in poverty. Many children don’t complete elementary school. At a Vida school, Christian teachers – many of whom were once Vida students themselves – are personally involved in your students’ lives on a daily basis. Our leaders, teachers and support staff provide godly role models to help your child know the Lord and become all that He intends for them to be!
Your investment of $50/month helps break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy for the children in your class. Your support will help the children receive:
- resources to provide the best education possible
- Christian discipleship and mentoring
- healthy nutritious meals and vitamins to help them learn better
- a welcoming environment with appropriate facilities
- care from teachers who support them holistically
(some of these services are also funded through other gifts to Impact Ministries)
Your class is also be blessed by your prayers and encouragement!
Impact Ministries is looking for 10 supporters for each class. You can follow your class throughout their education in our Vida Schools, although classes do merge, especially during transitions from elementary school to junior high, and junior high school to the senior high teacher training program
