Steps of Hope Guatemala
Making a Difference One Child and One Family at a Time
Steps of Hope is an Education Center for children ages 3-14 located in Santa Maria de Jesus, Guatemala. We believe that education is the way to change the course of a child’s life. Education is a process, and the results are not immediate. The more basic skills the child has to continue learning and growing, as well as knowledge about world outside of their community and the Lord, the more opportunities they have to succeed and to have the life they dream of.
Steps of Hope Guatemala is a Christian learning center that supports the children of Santa Maria by empowering them and their families to live an abundant life filled with educational opportunities.
The Tutoring Program
The tutoring program is for our students who have not been able to attend school due to lack of financial resources. The children attend classes a few times each week at the Steps of Hope Resource Center to learn basic math and reading skills. Students enjoy snack time and recess where they play and interact with their classmates.
The Meal Program
We provide a hearty meal to our students so that they do not need to study hungry.
The Sponsorship Program
In Santa Maria, public education is free, but at the beginning of each school year, the students are required to buy school supplies, uniforms, and shoes. Many families lack the financial resources to purchase these necessities. We have created The Sponsorship Program to help those families in need, so that they can purchase the school supplies and uniforms the students need to attend public school.
