Education is critical for children to rise above poverty.  That is why regular school enrollment is a requirement for children in the ChildCARE Plus child sponsorship program. 

In many countries suffering with poverty, it is common to have older children enrolled in primary grades as they are late in their ability to enter school. 

Whether a young child, or a pre-teen, monthly child sponsorship fees help each enrolled child to receive access to education and a brighter future. You can support a child through primary and secondary school by becoming a ChildCARE Plus sponsor.

Sometimes youth aren’t able to continue on with secondary school academic studies, and so vocational training is the best solution to prepare them for a career.  To help young people on a path to earning an income and breaking the cycle of poverty, ERDO assists by providing vocational training opportunities in some of our program countries. 

In Guatemala, the William Cornelius Vocational Training Center (WCVTC) is a 50,000 square foot Christian oriented technical school which is bringing a generation of young Guatemalans a first-class vocational training experience that will equip them with the tools they need for success.

The vision at WCVTC is to influence a nation with well prepared graduates who will impact their workplace with practical skills, leadership skills and hope for the future. Breaking their cycle of poverty and raising the quality of life for their families, communities and country.
