$500 for 50 kids on a 50th birthday

Amusement Park 1

Just before the school year wrapped up in Guatemala, the 279 children of New Hope School enjoyed a special field trip. The kids went to Mundo Petapa, an amusement park in Guatemala City, and they had a fabulous time.

The excursion was funded in part by sponsor donations to the Gift Fund, while the costs for 50 kids were covered by a generous $500 gift from Katie Begley, given in honor of longtime Common Hope supporter Xerxes Bhote on his 50th birthday. Says Katie, “Xerxes was very touched by the gift. He was so pleased that the children had a fun day in his honor.”
