There’s a tremendous need in Guatemala for safe spaces for young teens to go who find themselves pregnant due to rape and incest. JPLA is one of only 4 homes for these girls to go, and currently there is room for only 6 girls. An additional house is needed, and while 6 more spaces won’t change as many lives as is needed, but it will change 6 lives at a time!
It costs approximately $60,000 to build a home, and maybe furnish it. That’s the start we need. This will take everyone who can contribute $5, $25, $100, or $1000….but it will also need those people or businesses who can do even larger donations. Maybe some of you can do your own fundraiser and contribute the proceeds.
We are just a team who goes annually representing several churches and have seen the need and the change in these girls, some as young as 11 or 12. We can’t do what needs to be done to even begin raising the money, but we serve a God who can move on hearts to make what looks impossible possible.
