    GO TO Guatemala WITH US THIS SEPTEMBER! Info here:   



The single most significant way to improve a life in the village of Nimasac, Guatemala is to get an education. Esperanza de Guatemala and our partner, Cary Presbyterian Church, provide scholarships so students can go on to school after 6th grade,  "Building a Better Future...One Student at a Time." Your gifts will provide scholarships, and help with teacher training, school supplies, technology and student transportation.


        To help provide a scholarship through a donation of any amount, simply click the Donate button. We also welcome your sponsorship of a particular student.  To sponsor a student, write us at admin@esperanzadeguatemala.org. Read all the details in the Education and Literacy section. All these gifts  truly make a difference.  Thank you!

Our Vision & Commitment

Volunteer, Participate, or Donate


Esperanza de Guatemala's work is  changing lives.  Our nonprofit provides a holistic approach to solving the challenges brought about by extreme poverty in the Guatemalan Highlands.  We partner with local communities to empower these communities and individuals to create opportunities to thrive.  Read on to find out

What We Do.

Education & Literacy

From scholarships, to supporting the local school, to promoting the importance of education and literacy, Esperanza de Guatemala's work is making a positive difference in the lives of rural Guatemalans.

Health & Well-being

Lack of clean water, widespread malnutrition, inadequate local healthcare and more contribute to the need for better health. We're working with our partners to improve this situation in the Guatemalan highlands.

Economic Development 

The rural economy is focused on subsistence farming with little opportunity to learn skills for production, service, or business. Small steps to offer more opportunities are underway and will grow as the future unfolds.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
