Iglesia Belen Music Training Program

The project will purchase guitars, flutes, and study booklets to create music classes that will help the children of the Iglesia Belen CarePoint develop musical skills and abilities. Music classes will start once a week and will eventually increase so the children can have a safe space to develop their instrumental skills. At the same time this will help to reduce the risk for the children to get involved in drugs, gangs, and other dangerous activity.

Mechanical Training

Chimaltenango is a community with a high level of poverty, where there is danger due to gang involvement and lack of opportunities. My Special Treasure Education Center’s goal is to be able to present to the children a solid moral and ethical basis for life, providing them with the opportunity to have access to education. In this way, they will become people who will impact their generation, and will become the agents of change for Chimaltenango and Guatemala.

Mision Energes School Bus Purchase Project

Currently, Mision Energes offers school bus transportation for 70 children, who are between pre-school and high-school levels, providing support to reach higher education standards in the community. This service is available, both mornings and afternoons, from Monday to Friday. The purchase of the new bus will increase service capacity to the community from 70 to 85 students the first year and by 10 more students in each successive year through the fifth year. That means that we will be increasing our capacity by 55 children, over five years, which is an increase of 78% over those years.
