Scholarships Nurture Dreams Like Pablo’s

Pablo’s dreams are possible. Scholarships are keeping kids off of the streets and in their studies. They are replacing fatalistic despair with dreams of a future. During a recent walk through La Limonada, Tita stopped Pablo, one of the 2017 graduates, to ask him a few questions about the scholarship he received as part of […]

Celebrate the 2017 Scholar Graduates!

Today we are celebrating an incredible class of 2017! There is so much that could have pulled them away from this accomplishment. Violence and danger on the streets as they walk to and from school. Families struggling to keep the lights on so they could study. Sickness, depression, loss of loved ones, and other emotional […]

Give Dreams – Donations And Impact Doubled For The Next Two Days!

A generous donor has offered to give $5,000 to fund scholarships for half of our unsponsored scholars for the first quarter of 2017 – but we have to match his gift dollar for dollar. This is an opportunity to do twice the good with one donation! A gift of $50 will be matched to provide […]

Scholarships nurture dreams!

It is not right for a child’s dream to be crushed before that dream even has a chance to form. It is not right when poverty keeps a child from continuing with school – especially when we believe education is the most powerful way for a child to escape the cycle of poverty. While public […]

We believe in investing in the children of La Limonada during their most vulnerable years. By the age of 7, many are struck by the reality of the deep poverty, prejudice, and lack of opportunities for a future. Will you join us in walking with them towards full lives in Jesus?

Give Scholar Education This Christmas

Give Christmas is an opportunity to come together to work for the peace on earth that Jesus came to bring – starting with life-altering education for vulnerable youth. Finishing high school or attending a vocational training program that would open the door to an honest job is out of reach for many children in La […]

A Pathway to Peace in La Limonada This Christmas

Give Christmas begins today! This is our opportunity to come together to work for the peace on earth that Jesus came to bring – starting with La Limonada, a community dominated by deep poverty, gang culture, and violence. Over the next six weeks, our goal is to raise $80,000. These essential funds will provide practical gifts […]

Thank you to all our dedicated, loving sponsors

  Sponsorship impacts the lives of children, families, and the entire community. Last week, we shared a testimony of one family who has gone all the way through our programs. Starting in the academies as young boys, these two sons of Miriam went on to receive scholarships and graduate from vocational school. They now have […]

Why We Do What We Do

(Mauricio showed off his new wedding ring to Tita and Bill earlier this year. February 2015.) When Tita first walked down the narrow paths into La Limonada, she was working with youth who had fallen deep into gang culture. Many were drug addicts and thieves. She looked past the menacing guns, tough faces, and feared […]

Scholarships Build Dreams

There she received help from her teachers and says she feels smarter as a result. She felt loved and learned to want a better life as she was taught about God and […]

Give Future Hope to a Scholar

Many of the children in La Limonada hope for a better future—finishing high school or attending a vocational training program that would open the door to an honest job. In Guatemala, a simple job as a dishwasher requires passing at least the ninth grade. But education beyond sixth grade requires tuition that most of the […]
