Mision Energes CarePoint
The Mission Energes CarePoint is a drop-in ministry center located in the village of Monjas, Guatemala.
The staff work as a unified team at Mission Energes to provide meals, support, and discipleship for children from the ages infants to 15-year-olds. The nutritional situation in this area is poor due to a limited variety of food available. Mission Energes has been working to combat this issue. Another pressing issue in this community is the unemployment rate due to low education levels. On average, adults who do hold jobs in this area earn only 200 Quetzales (US $27) per month. Some parents are interested in working, but often lack opportunities. Parents usually try to find day jobs and are only paid for days worked. There are two public schools in this community which are both over-crowded, and teachers normally have at least 40 students in their classroom. The ministry provides scholarships for many of the students in the program to a Christian private school in order to increase the level of education in the community. The staff at Mission Energes are committed to investing in the lives of the children in this community and helping them reach their full God-given potential.
With the partnership of the Eastminster Prebyterian Church, the children at Mision Energes CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Eastminster Prebyterian Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Mision Energes
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 Mision Energes
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 Mision Energes 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.
