It was another successful year that reached out to 1000s of the mountain children who attend the remote rural schools. These schools are hidden in the midst of a mountain area that is hard to realize that so many inhabit. So many people contributed to the success of this annual outreach. There are people who collected crayons, colored pencils and regular pencils. Many people sent is financial assistance to purchase the notebooks and other needed supplies in Guatemala. Multiple teams came to help fill these school packs, many who prayed over every child that would receive one of these packs. A team came to assist with the distribution.
It took 18 pickup loads this year to reach the 55 schools, that allowed us to bring these supplies to a total of 6,177 children! We were able to cover our Embrace children this year, those who did not receive school packs from their sponsors. It is hard to explain the level of poverty that exists in this part of the world and what these basic supplies mean to those who receive them. Thirteen years ago, a teacher came to me to say that all her students had to do their class work was using sewing needles to scratch their letters on rocks! This was our wake-up call to the need to reach out and make a difference in education. We are breaking the curse of illiteracy for the first generation with these precious children. We are giving them a chance that their parents and grandparents never had!
This is an outreach that we work on pretty much all year. As soon as we are done with one year, we begin to generate interest for the following year! We want to reach out to as many children as we can, and we need your help to do so! Please let us know what you can do. You can communicate with me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Please stand with us to make a difference!
Special heart felt thanks to all that made this year's distribution possible! Below is a table that shows you the schools that we covered and the total combined children that were impacted by this project!
