New Tools for a Changing World

Tucked away in small communities on Guatemala's Lake Atitlán, many of our partner schools lack access to one of the world’s most powerful teaching tools: the internet. We’re committed to seeing students succeed despite the challenges of rural life.

How do we do it? With RACHEL. This educational tool allows for knowledge-sharing without the use of the internet. We offer RACHEL through a collaboration with Mundo Posible to give students the chance to learn beyond the walls of their classrooms.

How does it work? Each library has a router that allows students to log into RACHEL from an electronic tablet. Students can then engage with an extensive collection of educational games, stories, and videos. All materials come pre-selected based on students’ age and reading levels. RACHEL can triple or even quadruple the resources Pueblo a Pueblo is able to donate to any given school.

It’s no secret that in today’s world, most public and private institutions depend heavily on computers and other digital technologies. As a result, many jobs—even in rural Guatemala—require technological literacy. We seek to prepare students for personal and professional success, and RACHEL is a helpful way to build the skills they need to achieve this.

RACHEL helps schools address the challenges of rural life. The program also gives students from rural communities access to the life-long benefits of technological literacy. Your donations to this project help us bring RACHEL to schools all around Lake Atitlán. Thank you for supporting students as they learn to read, write, communicate, and self-advocate in an ever-changing world.
