Prioritizing Girls' Education Needs in Guatemala

By Virginia Terry | Head of Development

Even before the pandemic, girls were severely underserved by schools, teachers and schools in Guatemala - especially Indigenous girls living in rural areas. In the wake the pandemic, girls' education has reached crisis stage, with permanent school closures and severe learning losses.  Girl Rising's work has focused on providing support for teachers, creating new adaptations to curriculum delivery that can help address the long distances between schools and homes, and to bridge the digital divide.  

We have also adapted our program delivery to address the mental health needs of both teachers and learners. Our curriculum and teacher training has incorporated self care and community building. 

We continue to develop new educational resources to accompany our opular radio program.  Most importantly we are engaging parents in new ways to build their awareness of the importance of supporting their daughters' education and to help provide at-home learning tools and actvities.  .

In our last report we shared that we launched a new communications campaign to advance girls’ education by creating and distributing culturally relevant media content to a range of stakeholders, but prioritizing fathers and community leaders.  The campaign is focuses on the value of girls education and our goal is to inspire fathers and communities leaders to become allies in advancing education and opportunity for girls. 

All campaign messaging has been created through a community-based process, to inspire a feeling of ownership in the success of the campaign among a wide group of stakeholders. We continue to deliver the campaign throughout the summer and fall, and will be executing a measurement and evaluation process in the first quarter of 2023.
