Faith & Service
Motivated by a love for Christ and the desire to follow God's will, founders Vincent and Zulena Pescatore founded the first Farm of the Child in the remote rainforests of El Peten, Guatemala in 1987. After establishing an orphanage, clinic, and school, Vincent & Zulena were called to then begin an orphanage in Honduras. In 1993, they began construction of Finca del Niño, in the northern coast of Honduras outside the town of Trujillo. Shortly thereafter, Vincent Pescatore died in a tragic plane crash in the mountains near the Finca del Niño.
Today, his vision and this beautiful mission continues thanks to the grace of God, a partnership with the Central American Order of Franciscan Sisters, international missionaries, the love of Zulena and the Pescatore family, and that of our devoted Board members & employees.
