PREPARED. It's what we hope to be true about each child at New Life Children's Home and each child in our surrounding community. We pray that as they move into adulthood, they are prepared to live a Christ-centered, fruitful life.
One of the most important ways we are preparing the children here is by providing a quality, Christ-centered education through New Life Christian School. We are working hard to overturn the alarming educational statistics in Guatemala*. While over 90% of children here begin kindergarten:
- Only about 35% make it through 8th grade.
- Less than 20% graduate high school.
- 59.3% of Guatemalans live in poverty or extreme poverty.
