The GOD'S CHILD Project

The GOD'S CHILD Project mission is "to break the bitter chains of poverty through education and formation." While GOD'S CHILD is rooted in education, we aim to support the communities we serve at every level of development. Through our wide range of programs, we help children and families living in extreme poverty to meet their basic needs and find a restored sense of hope, self-worth and human dignity.

A role model for her siblings in El Salvadpr

A role model for her siblings in El Salvador

At the age of 21, this young lady has been working against poverty in her country, El Salvador and specially in the community where she lives.  She is her mother's support.  She is the role model of her other five siblings, even when they have all the desire to get out of poverty it has been hard because they don't have thier father's support.

The young lady's mother is from Guazapa, she never had the opportunity to attend school because her parent's thought was that studies were not useful, but she worked hard day after day to support her children.  Unfortunately they don't have a secure place to live and they had to move from house to house because rents are high.

When we noticed the problems that this family was going through, Asociación Nuestros Ahijados started to support them in our project in El Salvador, which consists in bringing monthly rice, beans, clothes, shoes and economical support accoriding to how they are doing at school with the mission of transforming their life and changing them to a better persons.  Even though their econimic situation is not good, she continues working hard to reach all her dreams, she is working on weekinds selling beverages in a small business that the mother has.  During the week she studies to be an auxiliary nurse.  Her siblings also study at the village school.

The lady and all the family are very grateful with all the support that we have been giving them. Without it all their economic issues would be worse.

Scheel Center

 

 

He is a young man of 15 years old, he was born in Santa Rosa. He presents the problem of total loss of hearing in his left ear since the age of 8 years.  In 2013 his parents took him for a medical examination, but the diagnostic wasn’t very hopeful because a hearing device couldn’t be installed because he does not have the needed skin tissue to place it.

 

This young man was born into a very poor conditions, he never had his three meals each day, unfortunately neither the mother nor the father could attend school reason why finding a job has been hard for them.  The father is a day laborer in a coffee farm and the mother is a housekeeper.  He has a younger brother who is 12 years old.  The coffee farm provides them a little piece of land for them to live.  As the possibilities of the family allows them, they have made a small room with metal tin and some wood, which does not have the basic services that are water and electricity.

 

Starting this year, Asociación Nuestros Ahijados has been supporting this young man with his studies.  He now in 7th grade at the Scheel Center. We working to improve his life. At the Scheel Center he can receive medical, physiological and dental care as part of our services. He is doing well at school, according to his teachers; he could do better but because of his hearing issue it is difficult.  He is a very shy boy and tells that he would like to be a National Police Officer, so he can be able to support all those people who are victims of the violence.  His brother is also receiving support from us and is studying Stage III at the Scheel Center.

 

The young man is working hard every day to improve and to have a better future, even though his hearing problems he never quits and comes to school every day.  He is very thankful for all the help he is receiving from Asociación Nuestros Ahijados through the Scheel Center School.  Please help us help him reach his dreams.

Education after loosing everything in a storm

 He is 9 years old and originally from Jocotenango He is the youngest of 5 children, and his father works day and night to help his family succeed.  He shares that in 2004, because of a bad storm in Guatemala, his family lost all of their belongings when all of their beds, clothes, and food became flooded and ruined.  The only thing they were able to salvage were a few pairs of shoes and some clothing.

 Thankfully they immediately received help, both from the God’s Child Project and from the Municipal authorities of Jocotenango. They were given shelter for 5 days in a room at the municipal office. After this, the government of Guatemala constructed a home for them in the Aldea de San  Chimaltenango. This home provides them with safe living conditions.  

 The children at this time were still too young to begin school, so the God’s Child Project helped them with clothing, shoes, food supplies, medical help, and other necessities to ensure their health. In 2008 their oldest child began attending our school, and at this time also received the benefit of having a sponsor parent.

 Currently, the boy is in 3rd grade, and he is one of the top-performing students in his class. He is very happy to attend school every day where he not only receives education but also nutrition, and his parents are very thankful to have their son attending school.  Every day his parents see the progress their son is making with the help of our programs at the God’s Child Project.  Help us so we can help others as they grow.
