Give and Transform Lives
In the Dominican Republic, children with disabilities are often neglected due to insufficient resources, forcing parents to abandon them in back rooms. For over 18 years, Centro Especial Genesis has been stepping in to provide vulnerable families with a safe space for their children to receive help.
The school is facing a challenge, the rental building they have been using is not suitable for their needs, which is making their mission even more difficult than it needs to be. To address this issue, the Genesis Building Project campaign aims to build a school specifically designed for special needs students; the first of its kind in Jarabacoa. This will allow the school to accommodate up to 60 students and expand their life skills program, ensuring that students thrive after graduation.
Our goal is to renovate the property we purchased in 2018 through the Training Center Remodel project. This project will enable us to offer better ministry sites, office facilities, and enhance our capacity to host outreaches and semester programs. Initially, we planned to purchase the property, pay it off, and then remodel it to meet our ministry needs. The Training Center Remodel project brings this vision to life.
At SI Guatemala, we currently lack a dedicated space for team members, summer staff, and interns to reside together while they serve with us; a place where they can bond and forge relationships with each other.
SI’s Community Center is an ideal location for hosting participants, with a lively atmosphere filled with diverse activities, staff offices, and community visitors. However, at the moment, there is no available space for lodging. To solve this problem, the Guatemala Team Floor Project campaign plans to utilize the unused roof area of the building to build a living space above the Community Center.
Many children in developing countries stop going to school after 6th grade. Our child sponsorship program in Guatemala provides assistance in covering the costs related to schooling, including tuition, books, uniforms, and other supplies.

You can help provide clean water filters which reduce waterborne diseases, and fuel efficient smokeless stoves. These wood burning stoves use 70% less firewood and remove harmful smoke from people’s homes. We use these tools to help provide opportunities for the poor and also build relationships so that we might share the gospel with them.

Our National Staff are from the country where they serve and play a huge role in our connection to the communities. Because many of our National Staff are not able to raise their own support right away, our National Staff Fund helps us to hire nationals to serve in our ministry sites and help share the Gospel.
