Can you imagine yourself fighting over trash for your daily survival?
It is hard to imagine but for 1,500 families in the Guatemala City garbage dump this is their daily reality. This is the third generation of those called “scavengers.” They grow up being rejected by society and come to believe that they are worthless, unloved and essentially garbage.
At Potter’s House we are convinced that it is NOT ACCEPTABLE that the future of these children is in the garbage dump! We are convinced that God never intended his greatest creation to live among trash.
Scavengers are also created in God’s imagine, and for that reason we call them “Treasures.” We long to teach them about the God who wants to live in a love relationship with them as well as provide for their physical and emotional needs.
We invite you to sponsor a child from Guatemala to provide him or her with opportunities to move toward the dream of a life beyond the garbage dump.
"Now I don’t depend on the garbage to survive and I don’t want the future of these children to be in the garbage dump. If you feel it in your heart the desire to support these children, I encourage you to do it!” Read Susy's sucess story
Because the scavengers experience a multidimensional poverty, Potter’s House offers a unique approach by providing holistic opportunities for them to build a brighter future.
Your support of $35 per month for an elementary school student or $70 per month for a secondary school student, allows the student to receive 20 hours of loving care and tutoring every week as the grow through: Education, Spiritual Care, Health Care, Nutrition and more.
As you obey God’s command to help the needy; you become a good steward of what the Lord has given you. When you gain the satisfaction of following the transformation in one person’s life; your will discover why we say that “after being involved at Potter’s House, your life will never be the same”. The Potter is at work!
We hope this experience will be an exchange of blessings!
God bless you!
