Zone 3 Garbage Dump Community of Guatemala City, Guatemala
ORIGIN OF PROGRAM: The Mentoring Program developed from a group of people who grew up in the garbage dump community. They discussed the specific challenges of the community and what made a difference in their own lives to encourage and support.
Focus on the whole family
Weekly meetings in family’s home
Bi-weekly large group meetings with all the families
Life skill educational topics
Field trips to see and experience life outside the garbage dump community
Increased discipleship focus as trust filled relationships have grown
As these families grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically the mentors hope and encourage them to reach out to those in the community so the life change will multiply.
