Sponsor a child in Guatemala at the Cadanino ministry.
Tim and Sharie Martiny.
What is pays for:
Your sponsorship will provide a vulnerable at-risk child with the opportunity to enroll in our community center in Guatemala where they learn valuable skills and break the cycle of poverty and be discipled.
By meeting the needs of vulnerable children, in the communities where they live, we help preserve the family unit which helps prevent children from ending up in orphanages or making a dangerous journey to another country.
By working in a holistic manner to provide at-risk children with quality supplemental educational support in their communities, targeting areas in which they personally need help, leveraging technology to teach cutting edge skills, working in partnership with local business, schools, staff and volunteers, while teaching spiritual formation, instilling values and providing nutritional assistance, we produce better academic results and improved community outcomes that help to radically change lives.
The truth is that the only thing that is more expensive than educational assistance for these children, is the lack of it.
We serve the children in four areas, intellectuals, spiritual formation, educational reinforcement and nutrition. The exact programs each child participates in varies depending on the center they attend.
Current programs include:
Spiritual Formation. Bible classes teaching them about God, prayer and what it means to be a disciple.
Educational Reinforcement. Math classes, tutoring and help with their homework. Access to a lending library of educational books. Use of our computer classroom to do research and investigations for their homework.
Intellectuals. Computer Classes, typing, MS office applications, Internet applications, email, web design and programming. The ability to join specialized clubs teaching robotics, engineering, woodworking and culinary arts.
Family Strengthening. By ministering to the parents and families through Bible classes and by providing services to their children where they need it most, we enable them to do the job that God has given them to do of raising their children.
