WBLUMC FOR COMMON HOPE
A team for Common Hope
"WBLUMC FOR COMMON HOPE" a team to help the Common Hope organization lift people of Guatemala out of poverty through education and services.
Our team is from the United Methodist Church in White Bear Lake. We hope to raise money for Common Hope, an organization dedicated to helping the people of Guatemala in the Antigua area. They strive to help break the cycle of poverty by making sure children have the chance to stay in school instead of quitting at an early age to help their family. Through sponsorship of these children and other types of support, Common Hope has helped hundreds of children successfully graduate from high school, and even go on to college, in a society where the norm is to stop going to school after the 5th or 6th grade. Our team would like to support this very successful organization through raising money, and encouraging sponsorship of children.
