The Village of Hope

Founded by Francisca & Mayarino Escobar, Village of Hope was born in 2002. It started with activities under a tree and on a blue tarp, “Panchita” as Francisca is commonly called, would bring children books and teach the kids how to read and write in Spanish. After five years of working like this and building a trust with the community, the Village of Hope started building their community center.

Now they have a large building where they host teams, retreats, a feeding program that runs six days a week, and various other ministries. Our main goal is to help communities in extreme poverty by focusing on the development of the Mixteco children through education, health, and hygiene. We believe that God has called us to show the Mixteco community about our God and His plan for their lives. We want to transform the community, eradicate hunger, and provide a proper shelter as a home for each family living in extreme poverty.
