Teacher & books for 24 preschool kids in Guatemala



We offer teachers the opportunity to start preschool classrooms in primarily rural, Guatemalan Mayan communities. The teachers have to work with the community leaders to find the suitable space to hold the classes. We provide the materials and a stipend to the teacher each month, as well as additional training.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Many parents in rural communities have not had enough education to prepare their kids for primary school. Without preparation, up to 30% of these rural children will not be successful in the first grade. There are graduated, but unemployed teachers available in these communities or in nearby urban areas, but the government is not providing enough preschool classrooms in the rural area for the numbers of children who need the service.

How will this project solve this problem?

We track the success rates for our kids when they advance to the first grade. Over 90% are succeeding.

Potential Long Term Impact

This past year we had 28 teachers in 24 communities preparing kids to be successful in the first grade. 24 of our teachers are women who had basic education (high school diplomas), but no jobs. They not only now have jobs, but are are preparing other girls, who have been underrepresented in the schools ,and boys to attend primary school and be successful.
