Guatemalan students cannot come to the schools yet to continue their education in a "normal" way due to the incresing COVID-19 cases. However, taking all the care possible and with permission from the education authorities we have had a few opportunities to have some of students at the schools for reinforcement in academic matters.
Just as before, we continue handing out worksheets of every subject to our students every two weeks. Teachers have found better ways to teach their own students through the worksheets and have found support from some of their parents. However we still have parents who cannot read or write so they have the chance to ask the teachers for any help if needed.
Our students from highschool have been using their new tablets for quite some time now and they get content updates every two weeks as well!
In other news, in the last three months 788 bags of food have been distributed within the NDG families that need them the most. We have found a new supplier who provides us with bigger bags that include fresh veggies or fruits.
We want to thank every one of you who has donated for making this possible!
