Community Development – What’s happening at the building these days?

Community Development – Community Center

As we previously shared, Zone 3 is a complicated environment for organizations. There has been a lack of collaboration and cooperation between organizations there, resulting in competition for resources, but the For the Love building has been the location of early growth toward a different environment.

In the last 10 months, For the Love of Missions has been able to support local leaders by opening the building to support their missions.

  • Three groups use the space for activities:
    • Afterschool tutoring, snacks, showers (Monday- Friday)
    • Homeless Outreach (Saturday mornings)
    • Youth Group Meetings (Friday evenings)
  • The building has also become the location of monthly meetings between community and organizational leaders looking to create synergy for the community.

These activities reinforce our belief about Community Development. The mission and all of the activities are coming from leadership in Guatemala. Also the community leadership meetings, over time, may grow into an incredible opportunity for community transformation.

For the Love wants to continue to offer a place for local leaders to organically grow and     connect in order to transform their community. For the Love of Missions sees the use of the building as the space needed for collaboration between organizations and community leaders and for future community outreach.
