Colegio Israel CarePoint

Colegio Evangelico Israel is a Christian school located in Tecpán, Chimaltenango, 55 miles (1.5 hours) northwest of Guatemala City. Tecpán is a rural area and is considered one of the oldest Mayan cities in Guatemala. As is the case in many others towns in this area, Tecpán suffers from child abuse, gang violence, and malnourishment of babies and small children.

More commonly known as “Colegio Israel,” the school was created as a response to the great need for quality education in the region. Colegio Israel CarePoint’s mission is to train students to be successful, overcome adversity, and prepare them for upper level education and professional careers. The school has over 370 students from kindergarten to high school. At least 80 of these children come from extremely vulnerable life situations. The majority of these children cannot afford to pay for tuition, books, and uniforms so they receive scholarships.

With the partnership of the Nineteen:Ten Church, the children at Colegio Israel CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Nineteen:Ten Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Colegio Israel

Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.

Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.

This Mother’s Dreams are Fueled by…Eggs!

In a community where most children have to work in fields so their family can get by, Maria has bigger dreams for her children.

Start a Fundraiser for Colegio Israel

HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.

A fundraiser for Colegio Israel CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.
