Give Joy 2 One was founded in 2012 to aid the growing population of orphans in Guatemala. The needs of orphans in Guatemala rose greatly when the country closed for adoptions in 2007. The mission of Give Joy 2 One is to serve orphans and families and help provide them with the necessary medical care, dental care, eye care and education.
Give Joy 2 One Ministries:
God Bless the Children
God Bless the Children is located in Guatemala City. Currently it is home to 14 children aged 0-6. The founder of the home is Cinthya Vallejo, a Christian Guatemalan attorney who has been placing neglected and abandoned children in foster homes since 2004. As foster care is no longer authorized by the government, the home was founded in 2010. Children are placed in the home by the Juvenile Courts from various regions of the country and come from abuse, neglect, and abandonment. At God Bless the Children, they meet the physical, mental, educational and spiritual needs of each child, by giving them a family model where they receive love and Christian principles.
Rehoboth Children's Home is located in the town of Chimaltenango, located 35 miles west of Guatemala City. Rehoboth is home to children between two and 18 years old. The name of the home is based on Genesis 26:22. In this passage, Isaac had dug two wells in the new land and those around him quarreled with him, saying it was theirs. Once he had dug the third well, no one quarreled over it and he named it Rehoboth, saying, "Now the Lord has given us room as we will flourish in the land." This means a lot to the children of Rehoboth; it reminds them that though their parents and others have abandoned them, God has made room for them. Guatemala has one of the highest violent crime rates in Latin America; your sponsorship will help these children have a fair chance to overcome these statistics and live a life full of God's abundance.
Pino Gordo Village
Pino Goro is a small village located outside of Jalapa, Guatemala. Families in this village have poor diets and live in horrible conditions as a result of extreme poverty.
2016 Boys Home Project
Give Joy 2 One is raising support to build a home for orphan and homeless boys next to the Rehoboth Home for Children. The construction of the new home will allow the orphanage to better serve the young men and boys and provide them with a stable and positive environment. Please consider partnering with us this year as we raise funds to build this home.
In 2016, Give Joy 2 One formed an alliance with Funcafe® to bring light to and raise awareness to the rural communities of Guatemala. Click here for more info.
