Rayo de Esperanza

Where we work

Hope of Life International is located in Eastern Guatemala, where severe malnutrition is a result of adverse weather, poor soil conditions, and the global economic turndown. We are a nonprofit international humanitarian aid organization dedicated to help children, families, and communities reach their full potential by tackling inherent causes of poverty and malnutrition in rural Guatemala.

For 35 years and counting, we provide hope and assistance to more than 308 underserved communities, joining with local people to find sustainable solutions to improve quality of life for children and families in need. We work alongside the marginalized and oppressed, implementing programs which focus on lasting impact and community-driven, sustainable change. We invite you to serve alongside us and join in our mission: Saving Lives.

Safe Haven Village
There are multiple areas at Hope of Life where children who have been abandoned, forgotten, or orphaned are cared for.

Safe Haven Village is a small community on campus that cares for some of these very children. Through the dedicated sacrifice and support of carefully selected American families, offers family environments that are allowing these children to thrive in the care of house parents who are committed to their successful growth- both physically and spiritually!

We believe family-style orphan care is part of God’s solution in caring for orphans, for healing hearts, and for training up a child in the way he or she should go. Safe Haven is an ideal place for these children to learn of the path God has designed for them!
