My Special Treasure Education Center

Sponsor a child through the Friendship Model

My Special Treasure Educational Center (MSTEC) is a Christian Educational Center dedicated to provide education from kindergarten to sixth grade to children whose parents work in the local dump of the Chimaltenango City. 

In addition to education, the center also provides food for these children to help improve their nutritional status. Health is also a priority for this organization, and that is why they provide medical attention on an average of three times a year to each child attending to the program. The educational center uses education as a way to present the gospel to the children and their parents.

With the partnership of the Faith Lutheran Church, the children at MSTEC CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Faith Lutheran Church also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at My Special Treasure Education Center

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.

Start a Fundraiser for My Special Treasure Education Center

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 My Special Treasure Education Center 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.
