Challenge

Las mujeres indigenas en Guatemala tienen el menor acceso a la educacion, y cuando acceden, la calidad es muy pobre.

Indigenous women in Guatemala have the least access to education, and when they do, the quality is abismal. Only 10% of the graduates in Guatemala reach the minimum standards for literacy, and only8.5% reach the standards in math

Long-Term Impact

No hay un modelo en Centroamerica para una institucion como el Colegio Impacto. Utilizando un diseno altamente intencional en la formacion de educadores y desarrollo de curriculum, nuestro modelo puede ser escalable y replicable para impactar a mas estudiantes y comunidades. There is no model for an organization as the Impact School. Using a highly intentional design in the educators' and curriculum development, our model can be scalable and replicable to impact as many students as possible.
