Raised Remaining


A school that provides education for more than 300 impoverished children that come from the most vulnerable sectors of society who would otherwise have no access to education.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Funding for operating budget, addition of a full-time English teacher, construction of a new facility, and addition of a high school which specializes in teacher training (grades 10-12). Current students (300) and future students are the primary beneficiaries, although the school also benefits the community and serves as a model for alternative education in Guatemala.

How will this project solve this problem?

Provide educational and technical skills to disadvantaged children in Guatemala.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project helps over 300 impoverished children have access to education. As the school reaches milestone toward completing the third floor another 150 students can now attend the school. The hope is to replicate this model throughout the country/
