Project Paraguay Foundation

Project Barrio Parque

To thrive, every child needs help in four areas: physical, educational, spiritual, and emotional. For $50 per month, you can become a sponsor, friend, and partner providing for these needs through the Project Paraguay school at Barrio Parque.


Why a School?

•Lack of educational opportunity: Children around Barrio Parque must walk 2 km to the nearest school. There is no preschool near Barrio Parque, making it particularly difficult for younger children to get to a school 2 km away. For this reason, most of them are not in school at all.

•Social problems: Girls as young as 12 are pregnant. Children are begging on the street. Many parents have jobs, but drink a lot.


Why in Barrio Parque?

•It’s a growing community with many children in need.

•We have a church building with sufficient classroom space.

•An experienced team from the school at El Renuevo will serve as a model and provide oversight.

•Pastor Miguel who grew up in deep poverty as a child, has compassion and understanding for this community.

•Project Paraguay has a proven track record of using resources carefully, overseeing the ministry wisely, and is blessed with a network of supporters.


What is Needed?

•Immediate sponsors for 30 children at $50 per child per month. The school year begins in February.

•One-time gifts for chairs, books, and other school supplies.


What Next?

•If you choose to be a child sponsor, your child will write you letters during the year that will be translated and emailed to you. We hope you’ll write your child too!

•Pray regularly for your child, for the staff at the school, for Pastor Miguel, and for all the work God is doing in and through Project Paraguay!
