School Lunches Improve Learning for Mayan Children

Jan 23, 2012

Feeding more in 2012!

The 2012 school year in Santiago Atitlan is getting off to a great start this year! The Pueblo a Pueblo School Lunch project will continue to provide hot daily lunches to the children of La Cumbre, Chacaya, and Panabaj. Additionally this year, because of the support of donors, we are expanding the program to the School of Tzanchaj II!   Tzanchaj is located on the shores of Lake Atitlan and within the danger zone declared following the devastating mudslides of 2005.  The 215 children who attend Tzanchaj  will now receive a daily hot lunch, often their first meal of the day for children from families who often do not have the resources to provide a healthy breakfast. Pueblo a Pueblo’s school lunch program will begin this year by providing daily hot lunches to over 760 students in Santiago Atitlan.  With additional donor support through GlobalGiving, we hope to expand the School Lunch Project this year to provide an important and healthy meal to more children within the Santiago Atitlan region.  Thank you for your continued support!
