The Guatemalan school year ended this month, and Niños de Guatemala is excited to celebrate another great class of students at graduation. We are eager to help support our students as they embark on new challenges in middle school, high school, and beyond. As we enter the last stage of the year, we are grateful for all of our supporters who have helped us develop a strong, international community.
London School for Girls
London School for Girls joined us this month for a two-week immersive trip. While here, the students volunteered in our schools conducting workshops for NDG students on English. While not volunteering the students studied Spanish with Cambio NDG, participated in Impact Experiences tours and workshops and spent time immersing themselves in the Guatemalan culture with their local host families!
Our thirteen volunteers provided invaluable language exchange, and fun activities for our students! We are so grateful they could come and become a part of our NDG family.
At Niños de Guatemala, we believe in the importance of continued education and encourage our students to keep studying. Beginning in 2019, Niños de Guatemala will offer its Basico graduates an option to continue their schooling with NDG High School, an afternoon online program offered in our school computer lab. Students can receive a high school diploma in Computation, recognized by the Guatemalan Ministry of Education. Graduates can also access additional scholarships for continued study in local private high schools and training programs such as the GOOD Academy!
The 1st of October, our schools celebrated Children's Day. The teachers and staff at NDG worked hard to create a special day to celebrate our wonderful students. All students were able to dress up, and volunteers brought several cakes to share with the students!
