El Centro Candle Fundraiser
First, we would like to thank everyone who contributed to last years candle fundraiser! We have been so blessed by God, and all of your support has allowed us to continue to provide for the at risk youth here in Guatemala. Your warm hearts and generous donations have touched the lives of so many. This past year we have continued sponsorship for youth in need, hired needed education staff and helped 4 of our students graduate this past year. All with your generosity and prayers. Thank you!
A little about us
El Centro Youth Center focuses on Guatemala City’s ‘Red Zone’ youth by continuing their education, teaching life and work skills, and sharing with them a hope for the future through a life rooted in Jesus Christ. This allows the kids to live a different reality than the one they have grown used to.
In an ever changing world, we find ourselves coping with family, work, and personal challenges during very uncertain times. The children in Guatemala City are still faced with yesterday’s problems; poverty, sexual and domestic abuse, gang violence and halted education. Through El Centro’s continued efforts in assisting these kids, they are helping them work towards a brighter future.
Handmade Candles for a brighter future
100% of your donation goes directly to supporting El Centro and in return you will be gifted a scented candle of your choosing, matching the donation.
With the Holiday season arriving, the warmth and welcoming smell of a candle provokes a feeling of comfort, family and love. As the light of a candle in a dark room shines like a beacon, so is the mission for El Centro to be a Beacon of Hope for their youth.
These candles are sure to make the perfect gift! At the bottom of this page you will find the donation link as well as some important information about candle ordering.
Thank you for considering a donation and helping to change the reality of children who deserve nothing less.
