Transforming the lives of children in Guatemala. Providing education and food to needy children living by Guatemala City’s largest waste site.

ChildAid in Guatemala

Our ministry partner in Guatemala, Potter’s House, works to support the needy communities living and scavenging by the rubbish dump. The aim is to empower these communities to make significant changes in their own lives with the aim of breaking the cycle of poverty.

Their community centres run holistic programmes for all ages, centred around the Christian faith.

Potter’s House has also been serving the community of Chiquimula since 2017. Chiquimula has one of the highest rates of poverty in Guatemala and is part of the “dry corridor”, an isolated area which is in drought for most of the year. The work began by slowly providing ovens and water filters, renovating classrooms, and running children’s Bible schools. A number of Potter’s House staff relocated there to better serve the community and a community centre was established to run various programmes, including a Health and Nutrition Programme.

In order to combat the endemic issues of poverty and deprivation, Potter’s House is now running a ChildAid sponsorship programme in Chiquimula. This will be run in the same way as the sponsorship programme that serves the dump community children in Guatemala City.
