Misioneros de Padre Tomas

$1,005 of $22,000 goal

Raised by 10 people in 6 months
Created November 20, 2018
Our truck at Caminando Por La Paz, Guatemala is getting old and we are now  raising money for a new vehicle.. We have a pick up truck which was designed for five people.  We  often are required to transport 13 or even 14 persons at a time.  The truck is  12 years old.

The truck is showing more than it's fair share of ware and tare.  We really need a new vehicle, one that will support transport of at least 12 persons.  You may know of some of the use we have for our vehicle: (1) transport of students to classes,  (2) Going to market for the food we service the kids who come for tutoring, and receive lunch (3)  taking our people to church, (4) picking up visitors (5) Occasionally acting as an emergency vehicle for our neighbors.
A new vehicle will be a great blessing to us as we strive to  provide education to a group of marginalized children in Zone 18 of Guatemala City.  In many cases these are children who have no other educational opportunity.   We also provide a great deal of Community Service and at times we function like a Catholic Workers House.

Honestly, the  list of our charitable actions is too long to list everything here.  You can learn much more about us and our activities at: wwww.fathertomsmission.org.. 

One way we are striving to become economically self-sufficient is the sale of our Family Coffee.  We are far from our goal of financial independence with this effort but we can proudly say we are on the way.  Learn more about this at:  www.fathertomsfamilycoffee.org.

We are not doing well in terms of receiving donations. It is rather unknown if we are at least getting better known. Perhaps since we started early we will at least raise enough in the time we have before the current truck totally gives out to purchase a very good used vehicle if there is not enough for a new vehicle.

We have yet to receive much support. However it may help people to know that no matter how small every donation is greatly appreciated.

Here you see a few of our kids in tutoring.
