Mission Statement


More Than Compassion is a nonprofit organization committed to rewriting the stories of orphans in Guatemala. We work to meet the childrenÂÂÂ’s basic needs and to equip them with skills to succeed in the future through quality education and practical training. Our goal is not to merely delay the onset of poverty for these children, but to empower them to rise above poverty and break the chains of injustice.

Description


We are blessed to serve 90 beautiful children who live at Fundación Salvación, a Christian orphanage in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. These children range from 6 months to 18 years, and the majority come from backgrounds of abandonment and abuse. Because MTC firmly believes the best way to prepare these kids for the future is through education and English, we founded, constructed, and staffed the School of Hope, a bilingual elementary school for the children of Fundación Salvación orphanage. This school, accredited by the Guatemalan Ministry of Education, opened in January 2013, and hosts more than 50 students from La Fundación. The school is taught in an immersion format, with over half of our classes offered in English. The kids range in age from 4 to 15, and we offer classes from Pre-K through Sixth Grade. All of our students are on full scholarship – with all of their tuition costs, school supplies, and uniforms paid for by donors. Eventually, the school will generate income through the tuition fees of students from outside the orphanage and this revenue will be used to auto-finance the school and start a scholarship fund as well. In the 14-year history of the orphanage only a few kids have graduated from high school and none have graduated from college. This scholarship fund will change that – and no longer will financial limitations prevent these kids from pursuing their dreams and realizing their potential.
