Summary

Ninos de Guatemala (NDG) provides over 500 children with access to the quality education they deserve. Operating 3 schools, NDG helps children gain "skills for success" that will serve them in both education and life. Skills For Success is Ninos de Guatemala's core educational program and it is designed to transfer five key skills to our students by the time they graduate from highschool: Emotional intelligence, language skills in Spanish and English, Technology skills, and Digital Citizenship.

Challenge

NDG works with children from low-income families who often see school as having a cost beyond their means. Although education is provided by the government, students are still required to pay for uniforms, books, field trips, supplies, and transportation. Besides, the quality of government education is so deficient that parents often question its value and wonder whether they are doing more damage than good.

Solution

NDG schools offer quality education to the communities of Ciudad Vieja and San Lorenzo at a cost that, today, is lower than that of government schools. Our schools have adequate facilities, outstanding teachers as well as a team of psychologists and social workers. Using a STEAM approach our schools strive to truly transfer "skills for success" to our students and work with their parents to ensure we do all in our power to produce high school graduates who are motivated and equipped.

Long-Term Impact

By providing a generation of Guatemalans with this type of education, NDG strives to replace a vicious cycle with a virtuous one. Instead of poverty sowing the seeds for still more poverty, NDG education today will foster an environment that leads to opportunities and accomplishments for all generations to come. Our children will have the chance to access better jobs and college careers. They can flourish and become leaders in their own communities and the whole country.
