El Centro Candle Fundraiser

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 a world that looks much different than a year ago, we find ourselves coping with family, work, and personal changes. The children in Guatemala City are still faced with yesterday’s problems; poverty, sexual and domestic abuse, gang violence and halted education. All while being confronted with today and tomorrows struggles of a global pandemic, lockdowns in difficult situations, and a drop in education.Through El Centro’s continued efforts in assisting these kids, they are helping them work towards a brighter future.


While this years fundraising efforts may look a little different, we are not letting the current global situation stop us from making a difference in these kids lives. 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 Christmas 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.
