Project Genesis is an organization that was founded in 2012 in San Andrés Itzapa, a small community located on the edge of one of Guatemala’s most vulnerable, violent, and underserved regions. Poverty, malnourishment, gangs, and violence have left many in the community of San Andres Itzapa without much hope. Ricardo Armas, a Guatemalan writer saw this desperation when he visited this community in 2012. When he visited, there and saw the desperation, he quickly realized that God had brought him there for a reason, and he could not ignore the realities of the people’s lives – especially the children – without doing something about it. In 2012, Ricardo set up an organization that has since been changing the lives of young people. Project Genesis has brought hope to the children and families of San Andrés, and a chance to dream about their future. Our financial support is a game-changer for the children in this community. Children who once never imagined a future are now realizing that they can go to college and become doctors and teachers and chefs and nurses. Thank you for taking care of “the least of these” during this Advent season. Please consider adding this area of the world to your prayer list throughout Advent (and beyond).
