Project Report | Feb 20, 2020
Thank you for donating in 2019

By Beatriz Gandara | Project Leader

“Shoes, the backpack or a notebook have been acquired thanks to your donation, enabling this young girls to continue their studies”

Throughout these years, your donation has been fundamental in continuing to support the education of the 36 girls in Retalhuleu. At the end of the 2019 school year, 100% of them promoted to the immediate ninth grade. 

According to the Ministry of Education of Guatemala, in the department of Retalhuleu in 2018 a total of 19,149 young people were enrolled in the basic cycle, of which 77% promoted the grade, 18% did not promote the grade and 5% dropped out of the school system, which reflects that when there is systematized accompaniment of students the results and effects are positive. In other words, the project’s methodology is generating effective results in the students, since they are motivated and want to finish their high school education.

During the visits to the schools, with the support of the directors of the educational centres, the registration of each one of the girls was verified, where it was detected that 12 were not attending their respective classes. Therefore, on behalf of the project, visits and tutoring were carried out to these cases in order to determine the causes of their absence, thanks to this action, 35 girls are currently registered.

During the period of November and December, 75% of the girls go out to work in their communities or outside of them, which means a risk of dropping out of school. In other words, since they receive an economic aid to their studies, they see this as a quick option to cover their needs and contribute to their homes, leaving their education in the background, as happens with several girls in the community of Canton Ayutia, which is why, at the beginning of this year, massive visits were made to the families to remind them of their commitments and responsibilities.

During the visits to the educational centers, collective counseling was held with the scholarship students to determine the existing needs and what was determined is that some did not have school supplies, shoes and tennis shoes for the physical education course.

Your economic contribution to the scholarship students is bearing fruit, they are discovering their potential, their skills and abilities that will help them break the circles of poverty in their family.
