Reestablishing In-Person Activities

WE ARE SENDING YOU GREETINGS FROM GUATEMALA


We are very excited that our academies for extracurricular activities are getting stronger than ever. Since we are not allowed to have all of our students back to school at once due to COVID-19 restrictions, our team strives to implement the necessary hygiene protocols so our students can go back to in-person activities. Regardless of this impediment, most of our students have been able to attend our online programs but some have no access to internet connection, so we have been increasing our efforts to allow our students to access the diverse resources we offer.




We are giving 7-9 classes daily to different groups of children and teenagers. Some of the classes we are offering are music, art, sports, chess, cooking, computer training/basic programing, and educational reinforcement.

Mayte and Arianna are sisters that have been part of El Patojismo since 2015. Sadly, these girls are having difficult situations at home with their family due to the lock down and economic problems from the pandemic. Thankfully, the extracurricular activities at the school have been a way to keep them in touch with their innocent/creative minds, but most importantly to proper meals. Mayte and Arianna have been able to receive 5 online classes per week through their parents’ WhatsApp. Additionally, on Wednesday mornings, they are assisting marimba (Guatemala’s national instrument) lessons following their art class and, at the end of the week, they participate in the chess club. Both of them love and enjoy all the classes that they receive at the project.





We are very proud to say that we are witnessing the powerful benefits and impact that these academies have and will continue having on our students’ wellness and lives.





Without your generous and ongoing support, we would not have been able to serve and support these two smart and sweet girls and the other 498 children in our school. We thank you and want you to know that we truly appreciate each and every one of you. Your support is vital, please help us continue to give these 500 kids a chance at a better future.





We thank you and want you to know that we truly appreciate each and every one of you.

Muchas Gracias from El Patojismo, Guatemala.
