Reading means dreaming with your eyes open

By Beatriz Gandara | Project Leader

Using reading as the means for girls to learn about other cultures, different customs and “dream with their eyes open”, is our challenge to guarantee their schooling. Grandparents and some historians say that chuchitos is the dish used to share special moments in family or community.

Many girls who are not in the educational system are involved in the elaboration of chuchitos, in order to obtain an economic income to help their families, either as workers or with a small sale of their own. Chuchitos, a dish that is part of Guatemalan gastronomy, is prepared by wrapping the main ingredient, corn, a product that is grown in most rural areas of Guatemala and is a fundamental part of family meals, with tuza (leaves that cover the corn after it dries).

That is why FUNDAP believes it is essential to contribute to the integral development of scholarship girls by implementing activities such as the ‘Reading Club’, which aims to form the habit of reading, improve reading comprehension, expand vocabulary and, above all, enhance the creativity of the girls.

Some of our former scholarship holders formed a group called ‘Academic Tutors’, they are in charge of this accompaniment. Their mission is to carry out didactic activities with the support of mini-libraries, which were formed with the book donation campaign that took place this year, all with the aim of achieving the attention and permanence of our scholarship girls in the Reading Club.

Helping these girls with their education will make their future different; they will be an example of the improvement in their families and community. It is time to help them by contributing financially to our fundraising. Thank you infinitely.
