Vida Elementary School Purulhá

Jeremias and his family are descendants of the qeqchi, a people group of the indigenous people of Central America. He lives in Purulhá with his mother, father and three siblings. His father works doing odd jobs and his mother operates her own store from her home. They own a cement block house. The house has a cement floor and an indoor washroom. Jeremias helps out at home by cleaning the house. When Jeremias has spare time, he enjoys playing with little cars. He attends a Christian church in town. He is happy to be in school. When Jeremias started school he wanted to be a doctor. We look forward to seeing where the Lord will lead him.

* This information was originally collected when Jeremias entered the Vida School program. We encourage you to write your child to find out his current interests and aspirations.

Jeremias attends school at Vida Elementary School Purulhá in grade three.

This class is part of Impact Ministries' Vida Elementary School Purulhá in Purulhá, a small town located approximately a 25-minute drive southeast of Tactic. The public schools are filled to capacity with only 1,200 of the 10,000 school aged children from the area. This means that 8,800 school spaces are needed. The mayor of Purulhá implored us to plant a school in his community, and he donated a large piece of land to Impact Ministries for the construction of a school. We opened the doors of the school in January 2007 and provide an elementary program for approximately 150 students from Preschool to Grade 7. Most of these children come from needy and broken homes our hope and goal are to raise them up to be leaders who serve Him and influence the community around them.
