Summary

Education is the heart of our work. Our school is home to 75 children receiving classes in Spanish, English, Human Rights, Homework Help, Art and serves 1,500 meals monthly. Since 2011, our programs have delivered classes and support to over 2,200 students and their families here in Guatemala. We have also provided over 4,000 food baskets to our 35 sponsored families. The Integral Heart Education Center, staff, students, and founders have helped find homes over 100 stray/street dogs.

Challenge

There's Martha (8), who used to sit in a tin-shack watching other kids go to school, wishing she had the chance. Now she can. There's Luis (10), who was a modern day slave, picking wood in the hills and selling it in the local market. He is in school now and brings his 5-year-old sister Margarita to play and study. And there are 80 other children whose inspiring stories begin with your generosity. Most young children in Guatemala have no access to authentic intellectual stimulation or real love.

Solution

Stability is essential in providing a solution to the wrath of poverty. Through our education center, La Academia', The Integral Heart Family provides educational scholarships for 80 students to receive a compelling education to break out of this viscous cycle of generational poverty. At the center they receive three healthy meals every day and they participate in the following after school programs: Critical-Thinking, English, Spanish, History, Psychology, Homework and Art.

Long-Term Impact

Most important to the success of our 75 students is a loving, stable support network; that is what has arisen at La Academia. They are given love, individual attention, and dependable adults in their life who they can count on. They have someone who they can show their grades who will say, "I'm proud of you." Our Teachers-in-Training pass on their wisdom to younger students - Guatemalans solving the problems of Guatemala. Our dream is to enable our students' dreams and with your help we can.
