Women of Hope would not exist without faithful financial & prayer partners. Your donations to Women of Hope Guatemala mean we can continue our mission to disciple women of the Lake Atitlan region, helping them grow in their relationship with the Lord.
Continuing our business as mission project, helps our artisans & their families rise above the challenges of poverty, illiteracy, a culture of abuse and oppression.
Your financial partnership helps families break the cycle of poverty, finding dignity from a job well done.
Opportunities to Give
Our students are finishing the 2021 school year in October, in spite of COVID! The year has been a combination of classroom & online learning. Make their dream to further their education a reality for 2022! With your one time or monthly gift, of any amount will make a difference!
Jennifer - 10th Grade $425
Veronica - Internship/Thesis $1,700
Jaqueline - 3rd yr of Univ $1,326
Clara - 7th grade $350
Support House of Hope's basic expenses including rent, electricity, food, medical, counseling, and a stipend for a Guatemalan house mom to oversee the daily activities of the home. A total of $1,350 per month.
Your investment will provide these abused young women & their children a safe place to flourish. They receive godly counseling, discipleship and beading while learning life skills to manage a home & raise their children in a protected & restorative environment.
In spite of Covid, we have been able to maintain our artisans receiving a living wage! However, because of Covid changes we weren't able to sell at in person events as planned in 2020 and we are struggling to continue due to low sales. ($80/artisan/month)
Together with your investment to supplement artisan salaries monthly we will keep working; and providing for their family's needs. Our hope is to be doing in person events again this fall, yet expect to need help at least through yearend.
Keeping our missionaries on the field and funded is a high priority. Their daily work with the artisans and in the community is making a difference in the lives of families. Unfortunately the economic changes due to Covid during 2020, have reduced the monthly support for the Osuna's.
Your partnership with the Osuna's will make monthly health insurance premiums possible and keep them fully funded.
