PILAS Mission, Vision & Core Values


To provide Christ-centered education and character/leadership development programs to impoverished indigenous people of Guatemala.


To build up a generation of God-fearing, healthy, educated leaders in their family, community and country.



We aim to provide effective educational support services which will develop a student’s academic and problem-solving skills. We desire to expand on each student’s natural giftedness, interests, and talents. We want to graduate responsible citizens, equipped to initiate personal and social change.


The optimal development of each student is the responsibility of many. We are dedicated to working cooperatively with students, families, school partners, local churches, businesses and communities in order to unlock each student’s overall potential.


We believe that everyone deserves to be cared for unconditionally and valued equally as a unique creation, made in the image of God. The programs and services will be held in a safe and nurturing study environment that encourages, supports and spurs one another on.


We give priority to the development of Godly character. We challenge students to reach their full potential in order to use their God-given abilities to positively impact their homes, churches and communities for Christ.


We take personal responsibility for our actions, responsibilities, goals, and their resulting outcomes. We believe in trust, honesty and fairness in all relationships and decisions. The resources at our disposal are not our own. We are faithful to the purpose for which those resources are given and will manage them in a manner that best benefits the beneficiaries.
