Mary's Hope, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, whose mission is to establish a private Christian elementary school in Santa Maria de Jesus, Guatemala. Our vision and hope is to give children access to a free education, with the benefits of a hot meal, medical help, safety and economic support. The Children of Santa Maria de Jesus, whom we are working with, have had little to no formal education. To many of them, the dream of a bright future seems unattainable. Education is the vehicle to escape poverty. So please join Mary's Hope to change a child's life for the better.
