Agua Viva School

Agua Viva is a Christian school near Chimaltenango, Guatemala, providing education for nearly 300 students from the surrounding area. Guatemala is very impoverished and this area is no exception. The people in the area have little and many times it is extremely difficult for them to survive while caring for their families. The children who come to the school come from the surrounding impoverished community. The heart of Agua Viva School is to share the love of Christ, to educate, care for, and disciple the children, and to reach the surrounding community for Jesus Christ. We have found Agua Viva to be a place of peace and love.
