About This Project

Inspire has partnered with World Help and Hope of Life to adopt a village in Guatemala in need of transformation. The village is called Colonia Tawayni, La Union and is located about 30 minutes by 4×4 vehicle through steep, muddy coffee farming terrain. They have a total population of about 720 – comprised of 160 families with 450 children. This village is in dire need of school repairs, classrooms, playground equipment, water system improvements, and a church.

You can check out the project details below and the transformation progress we have been able make so far through our Give 50 pledge, thanks to people investing their money with Inspire!

Project Milestones

Purchase Land for the Church
Completed
2018
Land will need to be purchased to build a church building.
Fund the Church Build
Completed
2019
Build the church on the land.
Fund the Water Project
Completed
2019
A well is unable to be dug into the mountains at this location. Currently, there is a water source approximately 2 miles away from the village, however the current water source does not provide enough water for all of the villagers. The pipes are old and cracks bring dirt into the water system. This project would provide a holding water tank, more than 2 miles of pipeline and a distribution system.
Build the Church
Completed
2019
Current services are held in the home of one of the church's members. This project will provide a church facility for meetings and other ministries.

Make a difference and sponsor a child

We’ve witnessed time and time again how sponsorship truly changes a child’s present circumstances and future possibilities. When you sponsor a child, you’re not only providing them HELP and HOPE, you’re also building and nurturing a personal relationship through letter writing and prayer. Sponsorship provides a boy or girl around the world with help for today and hope for tomorrow.
