Paso a Paso Missions
Paso a Paso has been working in Guatemala for about 14 years. We have focused our work in the southern part of Guatemala in the department of Sacatepequez in Pastores. We work in a hillside community called Barrio la Cruz. This community of approximately 1500 people, is 25 kilometers from Antigua.
This is a poor community that faces several issues. Most men and women in this community have not completed even a primary level of school and cannot read or write. The average monthly income of families in Barrio la Cruz is about 1500 Q, or $200.
More than 30% of the homes are headed by single mothers; men are often absent or have abandoned the family. These families lack basic necessities like clean water, enclosed stoves and the financial ability to send their children to school and provide a better future for them.
There are over 125 children in our education program all of whom require sponsorship. A child can be sponsored for just around $15 a month, just $160 a year! This provides their schools supplies, supplements, and needed items for their families.
