Caroline’s Promise and Guatemala
Serving and partnering in Guatemala over the past 15 years has given Caroline’s Promise the opportunity to develop leaders, inspire entrepreneurship, and equip educators in several communities. With empowerment of local leaders at our core, many programs have been developed--ones that are sustainable because of the strength of our partners. Our Caroline’s Promise team on the ground in Guatemala consists of community leaders who serve their neighbors consistently. Several of our team members were actually students in our child sponsorship program. We are encouraged by this team’s willingness to partner and we depend greatly on their insight as we make sure we are meeting needs in the best way possible.
Our partnerships include teaming up with local leaders serving the town of Gerona (see the video for a glimpse into daily life there); partnering with Proyecto Oportunidad working in San Nicolas and surrounding rural areas focused on education, discipleship and skill building.
Child sponsorship is at the core of Caroline's Promise ministry. Our sponsorship programs, while similar to others, are unique in sponsor's are able to meet and build relationships personally with the children and their families while participating in our short term mission trips. For as little as $1.33 a day ($40 a month), sponsors make a direct impact on the children and their families. Sponsorship provides necessities for the children and families including food quarterly and, as needed, shoes, school supplies, and more. As you can imagine, sponsors are always needed.
