Pueblo Modelo CarePoint

The program of Pueblo Modelo consists of providing support in areas such as nutrition, education, and Bible teaching, as well as values in a local public school in Zacapa that serves approximately 600 children. The ministry is reaching out to the Zacapa community through the local church of “El Calvario.” The program that partners with Children’s HopeChest is in the local public elementary school, but our ministry goes beyond this to develop and build the relationships with women and pastors of the area. Pueblo Modelo already provides Bible teaching and wishes to partner together to provide a nutritious meal or snack every day for all the children at the school, expand the Bible teaching; improve the general conditions of the school so the children will have a better place to learn. By doing this, we will also reach out to their families and create a different culture in the whole of the community.

With the partnership of Good News Community Church, the children at Pueblo Modelo CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Good News Community Church community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Pueblo Modelo

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.

After checkout, you will be directed to a form where you may either upload or capture a photo of yourself. This photo will be used at the launch event at the CarePoint where the children in the program will select their “HopeChest Friend”. If you miss this step after the checkout process, you can upload a photo here.

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 Pueblo Modelo 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.
