Educational Programs

Your donation to Build a Brighter Future will help us provide educational programs – and so much more – to children in Guatemala!

Vida Students receive a full academic education, and participate in devotional times where they worship the Lord and lift their voices in prayer. Their teachers consciously take time to love and pray for their students.

Shouldn’t all kids be able to receive an education, feel safe and loved, and know God’s got their future? Help us build a brighter future for kids in Guatemala this holiday season!
