ONE CHILD EL SALVADOR, INC. (OCES)
Because of generous support from our DUMC congregation over the past 15 years, we have seen this ministry grow from a barren plot of land into a thriving church and Christian school!
Together, we are helping to CHANGE THE HEART OF A NATION – ONE CHILD AT A TIME!
Currently, there are kindergarten through eighth grades. As of the beginning of this school year there are 195 students! The school is growing and is adding the ninth-grade next year. Construction starts very soon! Eventually, this school will educate through the twelfth grade.
We have heard testimonies from many local families in La Magdalena that this school IS MAKING A HUGE DIFFERENCE in the lives of these children.
Over the past 4 years, One Child El Salvador, Inc. has become an established, credible non-profit organization. We have a local board of directors in Dahlonega, as well as Un Niño El Salvador, a mirror foundation on the ground locally in El Salvador. The two groups work side by side to fulfill the vision of establishing high-quality Christian school and further outreach of the El Salvador mission.
