Summary

This project will provide books and learning materials for a school library and preschool center in rural Guatemala, pay one librarian/tutor who will provide support to our students with special needs, and pay one preschool teacher. The library will serve 375 students from preschool through high school and their families.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Indigenous people in Guatemala have endured years of discrimination and marginalization. Aldea El Hato is a rural poor indigenous community with little access to public services, including education. The public school is in poor condition often with no access to running water, classes are overcrowded, and there are few teaching or learning resources. There is no access to reading materials and no support for children with special needs.

How will this project solve this problem?

We work with the public school and community by taking the existing infrastructure and improving it to help meet the needs of the community. We believe that the power of education will lead to better opportunities and futures for our students. This project will provide learning and teaching resources, extra teachers to support the students with special needs, and a safe and fun environment where students will have the opportunity to learn and read.

Potential Long Term Impact

With access to quality education, our students will be able to continue beyond 6th grade (the norm), improving opportunities for higher education, gainful employment, and better futures. These students will be able to bring their skills, knowledge, and experience back to their community in the hopes of the community becoming self sustainable and economically stable.
