Pastor Pedro Antonio Polanco Tobar is changing Chalchuapa as he serves the children in Jesus' name. This church oversees a Compassion child development program and is looking to partner with a church in the U.S.

  • Dios Proveeder Student Center provides Compassion-assisted children with Bible teaching, after school help, English language classes and computer workshops.
  • These children are given regular health checkups, nutritional food and hygiene education.
  • Parents or guardians of the children have the opportunity to attend parenting classes and meetings.
