Christmas at Esperanza Viva

Almost anywhere in the world, the Christmas season is one anticipated by children, possibly more than by anyone else. Like your family, we as an Esperanza Viva family have our holiday traditions. The kids enjoy helping the staff decorate the home with lights and other decorations. There are afternoons for cookie-decorating and games, and Christmas songs float through the air. As a Christmas Eve tradition, the dorms each have a dinner with their supervisors. On Christmas morning, everyone gathers for a full day playing together, singing carols and sharing Christmas dinner. This is a treasured time for the children, as they are not with their biological families, but feel the love and warmth of the big family in Jesus. As part of our extended family, you can help make our Christmas memorable when you give to the Christmas fund, allowing the kids to enjoy a delicious holiday meal, desserts and piñatas.


Working Together to Build our School

Will you help us?

A generous friend of Living Hope International has pledged the FINAL $250,000 of our $1,000,000 school building campaign!

However, the key to us receiving this pledge is we must raise the FIRST $750,000. We have already raised $120,000, which leaves us with $630,000 left! Can we count on you to help us?


I feel like I’ve known these children my whole life. Such a blessing they have been to our team. It warms my heart to see so many smiling happy faces. Our work projects have been challenging yet fun. Can't wait to see what more God has in store for us the rest of the week. ~Charles

This place has truly reminded me how powerful God is. It's safe to say He built this whole place. This is an example of how just plain trust & faith can pay off. ~Anna
