Meet our Local Hero
When Rut Chamale graduated college in 2007, God gave her the desire to serve children living in poverty. Her heart was broken when she noticed that the majority of children in Mayan communities didn’t have dreams for their future. She knew it was time to start working on her own dream of helping children have hope for the future by sharing God’s love.

VisionTrust Guatemala Learning Centers provide children with spiritual discipleship, tutoring, and health support. The children’s families are also selected for different community development programs. In addition, VisionTrust Guatemala has also partnered with local public schools where they provide teachers with workshops and trainings to improve their educational and administrative practices. In exchange, the public schools allow them to teach the Bible inside the classrooms once a week during school hours. VisionTrust Guatemala has also started a sports outreach where they are able to disciple athletes and establish partnerships with sports ministries and foundations.
