Our Current Focus
As a non-profit organization, we at Matthew 2540 have the opportunity to get to know the children and communities we serve. Currently, we are working directly with a Guatemalan non-profit called, La Promesa, which translates to mean "The Promise". We are raising funds to scholarship children in need to attend school. Throughout the year, we check on the progress of the children and build relationships with them and their families. We model Christian values and talk to them about careers and the importance of education to their future and their community. Slowly the culture is changing and we are glad to be a part of this movement!
Guatemala has the largest economy in Central America, but it also has one of the highest levels of poverty.
