Ahicam Children’s Home: Annual Coin Drive
UC Academy is pleased to sponsor Ahicam Children’s Home. In addition to prayer and friendship, UC Academy will provide financial support that will enable more than 50 at-risk orphans in Guatemala to receive a Christian education, food, housing and basic care.
Ahicam is located in a rural town of Machaquilá, Guatemala. They house orphaned children from ages 1 to 18. Some of the children suffer from physical or mental disabilities. Directed by Papa Luis and Mama Cony, Ahicam is committed to sharing the love of Christ with children who have been abandoned or displaced because of violence. Ahicam provides a safe environment for children to grow in the Lord and break the cycle of violence and poverty!
Donations are always appreciated in helping us support the children at Ahicam Children’s Home!
We will be having our Annual Guatemala Coin Drive for Ahicam Children’s Home from Tuesday, February 19 through Friday, February 22! This year, Kindergarten through High School will be participating. Our school-wide goal is to raise $5,000 in four days! Every $30 raised supports a bed for one month. Also, 15% of what is raised will go towards sending the High School Missions team to Guatemala!
Each school-level will be participating through different challenges throughout the week of the Coin Drive. For information on the student’s “Make A Change” Challenge and how you or your student can participate, check out the school-level specific flyers below:
As we continue to raise these much needed funds, please be in prayer for the children and staff of Ahicam Children’s Home, along with our UCA students and staff who will be traveling there to minister this summer. For more information on how you and your family can be praying, check out the Guatemala Team Prayer Card.
