The Cerro Grande community lies on the outskirts of Chihuahua City. Most parents in Cerro Grande and the surrounding area do not have high school diplomas. Women sell knitted goods in the market or work in maquiladoras (foreign-owned factories). Men make bricks or find work in construction. With small incomes, families have no access to running water. Children rarely bathe. At dinner, children eat cheap, packaged snacks. Parents try to send their children to school. But year-to-year, the public school remains at capacity. To receive an education, children ages five to 11 must enroll in Siembra y Cosecha, a private, Christian primary school. Parents struggle to pay the tuition. Many students fail their exams. Even so, the school’s grade curve allows them to advance. They enter secondary school unprepared. Many will graduate from high school only to return to the same poor conditions.
Our Vida Victoriosa program empowers these families to live victoriously. Four days a week, we provide an in-school program for Siembra y Cosecha students. At each session, we provide one-on-one help with schoolwork. Once a month, students attend our Bible study. We invite their parents to participate. Our Bible studies end with a lesson on hygiene and healthy cooking.
Because of our Vida Victoriosa program sponsors, families receive the knowledge they need to strive for better futures. Through Christ’s victory, they find their own.
