Mountains and rugged highlands dominate Guatemala's landscape. The Pacific plain is a narrow belt between mountains and ocean. In the southern highlands, the most populous region, is Guatemala City, and to the north is jungle.
More than half of Guatemalans descend from Mayan Indians and reflect the culture of their ancestors. The great Mayan empire flourished throughout much of Guatemala for more than a thousand years before the Spanish conquest in 1524. In 1821, the country gained independence from Spain. Since then, Guatemala's politics have been marked by rivalries and insurgencies. After a series of coups, short-lived rulers, and ever-increasing protest and repression, civil war erupted in the 1960s. Several attempts have been made to end the decades-old dispute, the most recent of which was the 1996 signing of peace accords.
Compassion’s ministry is focused on what we call holistic child development. This means developing children in all the different aspects of their lives—their minds, bodies and relationships—while giving them the opportunity to hear about and experience the love of Jesus from caring local church staff and volunteers.
Absolutely not! We encourage children and families of all faiths and backgrounds to register in our programs and would never require or coerce anyone to convert to Christianity.Learn More
