Lake Atitlan Programs
Located in Lake Atitlan region
In the Lake Atitlan communities of Santiago and Cerro de Oro, Orphan Outreach provides essentials of care to secondary students and their families with quality Gospel-centered education, technology training, tuition support, nutrition, and more.
Qualifying students throughout the Santiago region who want to continue their education through secondary school but lack the required resources are offered tuition support through sponsorship.
Community outreach efforts in neighboring Cerro de Oro serve indigenous people groups rarely provided care by the Guatemalan government, and Orphan Outreach remains committed to overcoming both language and cultural barriers to provide care for those in need.
Orphan Outreach has worked in the Lake Atitlan region since 2009, when it partnered a local church as a response to the overwhelming need for access to education for children living in extreme poverty. Ministry programs now include sponsorship for secondary students, church partnership, and mission teams that not only work at the school but also provide mentorship, tutoring, medical clinics, and humanitarian aid efforts in the villages of Panabaj and Cerro de Oro.
