Nutrition Program

47% of children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition in Guatemala

Childhood malnutrition causes inadequate brain and organ development, frequently resulting in permanent physical and intellectual impairment. Without proper nutrition and adequate healthcare during the critical first five years of life, children are not capable of reaching their full potential as contributing members of society.

Our Guatemalan partners travel up the mountain to the remote village of El Chico once a week to feed the children, connect with the mothers, and provide additional assistance to the neediest families. We have built a trusting relationship with the families, the children, and the teachers in local schools. Sharing the gospel message is an integral part of each visit.



Through the generous support of our donors and partner churches, we are expanding the feeding ministry to include additional meals and needed healthcare services for the children and families we serve. Our focus is to improve the overall health of the families from pre-conception on, and supplement the diets of the children as necessary to insure proper physical and mental development. Our hope, for tomorrow’s Guatemala, is to increase the number of healthy young adults who can fully engage in making positive contributions for lasting change in their society.
