El Jicaro CarePoint

The El Jicaro CarePoint is located in the department/state of El Progreso in Guatemala. It lies within a very dry zone of the country known as the “arid corridor” – a geographical zone receiving little precipitation. The average temperature oscillates between 86 to 104 degrees throughout the whole year.

With the partnership of the Kinship Community, the children at El Jicaro CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Kinship Community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at El Jicaro

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.

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 El Jicaro 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!
