Teaching Jesus and meeting needs in San Andrés Itzapa
Share the Change
In January 2013, a new program called Share the Change was founded by Maynor Tagual in partnership with St. Thomas More. As explained in Maynor’s words,
“Share the Change is an idea that emerged from God’s plans, who prepared this mission many years ago. With the vision of a better world (God’s Kingdom), the challenge was accepted, knowing this was an urgent call from the Highest.”
Through Sharing the Change, Madre and her Carmelite sisters established a religious education program which educates the whole person. They are educating children, youth, adults and families. This education focuses on coming to know Jesus and also in meeting the needs of the people, e.g., better nutrition, economic development, drinking potable water, working with single mothers etc.
