Lifting Kids is a christian, educational ministry, serving children and vulnerable adults in Buena Vista, Guatemala.

We are a Guatemalan non-profit organization, founded in 2014.  Since then, we have had the mission to “lift children out of poverty, through education.”  We have grown from not only an after-school program, but a full preschool and kindergarten, affectionately named, “Mountain View Christian Academy.”

While our mission is based in education, our vision is that children would recognize and accept the love of their heavenly father and walk in reltionship with Him.  We are kingdom focused.

 Personal relationships are very important to us.  Every child who walks thorugh our doors is greeted by name.  They know they are loved and valued.  Life in Buena Vista is hard.  It is importan to us that children have a safe place to learn and grow, in their education, spirtuality, creativity, and identity.


“Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”- Joshua 1:8-9
