Colegio Prosperidad CarePoint
Colegio Prosperidad CarePoint is located in Sacatepéquez, about one hour from Antigua, Guatemala.
The director, Leticia (Lety) Mutz, works alongside 15 other staff members to teach, support, care for, and love the children who attend the Colegio Prosperidad school. Most of these children come from homes where parents work in garment assembly factories that are located hours away from the home. Because of this, there is not much time to spend together as a family. Parents or guardians often do not have sufficient funds to buy nutritious food, affecting the children’s weight and size. Other risks in the children’s families include domestic violence, alcoholism, and adultery. There is a concentrated effort to provide attention to the children and to reinforce classroom topics to be sure that no one is left behind.
With the partnership of the Freshwater Church, the children at Colegio Prosperidad CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Freshwater Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Colegio Prosperidad
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.

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 Prosperidad
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 Prosperidad 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.

When our staff visit CarePoints, the most common question they get from children is how their sponsors are doing. They LOVE hearing from you!
