Banner The Untold Stories

For the average American, it is difficult to imagine a life in which the dump is both your home and your place of employment. The garbage, the smell, the filth—these are all outside the realm of our understanding.
And yet this squalor is the reality for over 10,000 people who live and work in and near the Guatemala City dump.

Even in their own country, these impoverished citizens are outcasts. They are contemptuously referred to as "the scavengers"—they are devalued and treated as less-than-human. 

Their situation is dire as they live and work in dangerous and unsanitary conditions. 


But there is hope. 

With your partnership, the beauty of these people can be redeemed. Their stories can be shared so that the world will know that these are among the real treasures of God. 

Read on. Allow the untold stories of these people encourage you and inspire you. Walk a moment in their shoes, and see life as they do. Witness in them the beauty of God and the opportunity to share His love with those who so desperately need it.
