La Yaguita is where our missionary Juan Jr. and his family currently lives and works.
This Elementray school/church complex is located in one of the most impoverished areas of Santiago. The school, which opened in 2005 is the least expensive in the area, with tuition at about $10 a month. Even though $10 is less than 25% of what is actually needed to sustain the school and its teachers, several students attend the school at La Yaguita on academic scholarship.
Every teacher is committed to serving and educating the students. The school provides each child with a uniform and classroom materials. The school also provides spiritual guidance, with a bible class that is added to their academic studies.
As a community church, La Yaguita has weekly prayer meetings, womens and mens bible study groups, and a Sunday morning church service. Juan De Leon, Jr serves as the church Pastor and caretaker for the building and is a teacher at the school, as well as his wife Karol.
Current Projects: The school at La Yaguita is currently striving to create a school library, provide heathcare for their teachers, reestablish daily breakfast, attain sponsorship for more of their students, and allow for electrical maintenence on the school property, as the school is subject to electrical blackouts. Please consider sponsoring a student today!
