Update on work for Asociacion Bendicion de Dios School in Guatemala


Wednesday, November 17, 2021    

We invite you to an update on Asociacion Bendicion de Dios School in Guatemala, an oasis for children living in extreme poverty. Hear from Julio Garcia, its dynamic director, about how this community was hit hard by COVID, and how he persevered to secure rarely available vaccines. Learn how your gifts last year saved many families from hunger and kept children learning remotely throughout the year.

Join us on Zoom with Rabbi Josh Breindel on Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. for an interesting and inspiring evening learning about our work in Guatemala. Listen to and ask questions of school director, Julio Garcia. Hear his inspirational story and see the impact of your purchases and gifts. Through the help of people like you, he has already saved more than 1,000 children from illiteracy and provided them with a path out of poverty. Click here to register.

As students graduate, they need scholarships to pursue career paths to break the cycle of poverty. They are becoming teachers, accountants, hotel managers, bookkeepers, physical therapists, construction workers and more. Can you help? Make a gift now — click here to donate.
