Asociacion Estrella de Mar

Our mission is to empower women through innovation and opportunity. Our vision is a generation of leaders for a society with equity.
Starfish Impact School
 
Just 10 percent of Guatemalan indigenous girls who live in rural communities are enrolled in secondary school, and less than 1 percent continue on to university. Starfish has embarked on a new journey to launch our first all-girls' secondary school in January 2017. We believe that by combining our intentional, holistic program with highly trained educators and a rigorous academic model, our Girl Pioneers will truly be able to realize their infinite impact and create long-lasting change. project reportread updates from the field
Create Opportunity for Guatemalan Girl Pioneers
 
The landscape for unlocking the "Girl Effect" in Guatemala is extremely challenging, but Estrella de Mar's holistic approach to development is breaking barriers. Guatemala has the worst gender inequity gap in the hemisphere, and opportunities are especially limited for the indigenous population. Estrella de Mar empowers young Mayan women with education and also equips them with tools and resources to ensure their long-term success and infinite impact, ultimately breaking the cycle of poverty. project reportread updates from the field
