Carlton Funding is firmly committed to making this world a better place. In addition to working to build better neighborhoods in the course of our day‐to‐day business, we are also actively supporting the following organizations by donating both our time and making financial contributions.
Hogar Miguel Magone Orphanage and Home Village of Aguacate, Guatemala (www.nowisthetimemission.com) Located in the volcanic mountains between Guatemala City and Antigua, Hogar Miguel Magone is a privately funded home to 50 boys between ages 6 and 16 who are orphaned, or who have been abused by their families and re‐ moved from their homes by the court system. Through it’s Child Sponsorship Program, and other donations from ￼￼￼￼￼individuals and non‐government organizations, they are able to provide a safe and loving loving home for these chil‐ dren by providing food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, psychological counseling, tutoring services, English, music, and art classes, computer training, trade skills, life‐skills training, and weekly Biblical teaching. This program and facility is a long‐term solution to equip these troubled boys for a fruitful, healthy, and productive life upon leaving the home at age 18. Nearly 100% of all funding for this home is raised privately through donations from Christian and humanitarian organizations.
World Impact (www.worldimpact.org)
World Impact is a Christian missions organization committed to facilitating church‐planting movements by evangelizing, equipping and empowering the unchurched urban poor. The challenges that they are facing head‐on include:
- WIDESPREAD POVERTY—The hungry, the sick and the destitute are next door. The orphan, the widow and the op‐ pressed fill our very cities.
- BROKEN FAMILIES—Broken family environments greatly contribute to the cyclical nature of inner‐city poverty. SYSTEMIC INJUSTICE—Systemic injustice, like educational gaps, places unequal burden upon the backs of the ur‐ ban poor.
- UNCHURCHED GENERATIONS—The lack of effective churches among the urban poor leaves millions of people alienated from God.
- THE LOSS OF HOPE—Hopelessness is the end product of alienation from God, broken families, systemic injustice and shaming poverty.
