The most central component of our work in Guatemala, Fundación Salvación is a private Christian orphanage that is currently home to nearly 100 children aged 6 months to 18 years.
Your support of the orphanage goes to provide food, shelter, psychological attention, bilingual education, and specialized medical care for each child.
Additionally, School of Hope is a bilingual, private Christian school built and owned by Story International and approved by the Guatemalan Ministry of Education. The School of Hope provides a quality, bilingual education not only to the children of the Fundación Salvación but also to low-income families from the local community.
All students from the Fundación Salvación orphanage are at the School of Hope on full scholarship, with all tuition costs, school supplies, and uniforms paid for by outside donors.
For $30 a month you may choose to sponsor a child's basic living costs (food, water, shelter, medicine, etc.) at Fundación Salvación or their bilingual education at the School of Hope.
As a sponsor, you will receive a minimum of two letters a year from your sponsor child as well as a recent photo. You will also have the opportunity to Skype with your child once a year. 100% of your sponsorship goes towards meeting the needs of the home - that's our promise.
Keep in mind that to cover "actual" expenses at the home and school, every child needs at least 2 sponsors.
