El Reparo CarePoint

El Reparo is a small village with a population of 2,800 located in La Nueva Concepcion, Escuintla Department (State) that is situated in the coastal lowland region, directly south of Guatemala City, and bordered by the Pacific Ocean. The primary challenges in the area are limited employment opportunities, lack of a high school close by, which leads to high dropout rates, and common illnesses resulting from mosquito bites and lack of access to clean water. The community is equipped with space available to run various programs and run economic empowerment projects, as well as full support from the school system to work towards change and improvement for the community. The community also has many natural resources that can be used to begin agricultural programs.

Empower a Child at El Reparo

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.

For many orphaned or impoverished children, decisions are made for them. The Friendship Model empowers children to make an individual choice about their future and removes the stigma of the child as a victim in need of help. Learn more about the Friendship Model.

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 Reparo 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.
