ABOUT US

    We love people. We believe in the power of restoration and we are passionate about doing what we can to help people live the lives they want. Lives full of opportunity and hope, cause after all, that's what we all want! 

    We work with communities who are hungry in body and spirit providing them with discipleship, learning opportunities and a way to provide nutritious food to their families through our kitchen garden combos. 

    We identify mamas with a desire and need to improve their lives. We work together with these mamas to come up with potential ideas for self-sustainable solutions using the skills, knowledge, and natural resources that already exist within their community. 

    OMAR PADILLA

    Omar was born and raised in historic Antigua, Guatemala. He has spent the last decade working to help the people of his country. From building houses to helping towns access clean water to educating kids, he's done it all! With all of his experience and a vision from God, Omar founded Revive in 2016.

    Omar cares deeply about family, and has committed his life to see the increased well-being of the families around him in his country. 

    When he's not running after a soccer ball, playing drums, or enjoying a good meal, Omar is doing what he can to love and help others.
