new life Christian school expansion

We have some exciting news to share with you about New Life Christian School in Guatemala! We are embarking on our most ambitious building project to date, which will double our classroom space and allow us (God-willing and with the approval of the Guatemalan Ministry of Education) to launch a high school program in 2018, allowing us to offer a high-quality Christian education to children from pre-school all the way through 12th grade.

The new facility will include administration offices and classroom space for elementary and pre-school students, programs for special education students and updated bathroom facilities. Our current school building will be used exclusively for students in grades 7-12.

The cost of the entire project is $1.5 million and will be completed in three phases. We have currently raised just over $200,000 and construction on phase 1, the bathroom and outdoor snack area is complete! The second phase will consist of a space for special education programs, library and computer lab. Phase 3 will include the pre-school, elementary classrooms and offices. 

Would you consider giving toward the construction of new facilities for New Life Christian School? In order to complete this project, we have over $1.4 million left to raise. Please select "NLCH-Building Projects" as the fund via our secure online giving site.
