In-person education in Santiago is back - finally!

With the arrival of spring, and the relative decline of COVID cases, children in Guatemala are finally returning to in-person school consistenly for the first time since 2020.  And for our health educators, this means there is a lot of work to be done and time to make up for.  Both of our educators Lola and Elias are back in the schools throughout each week teaching topics such as hygiene, nutrition, exercise, and disease prevention. 

Our team returned to Santiago in February, prior to the schools re-opening, and met with school administrators and teachers to perform a needs assessment.  The needs assessment focused on areas of need directly related to topics consistent with our health education curriculum.  We performed approximately 20 interviews with questions focused on the areas of hand hygiene, nutrition, exercise and dental hygiene.  Our team will use this information to help drive our future projects to ensure that they are consistent with the areas of need identified by the schools.

In the next few months, we will be making decisions based upon the needs assessment and then start to implement our plans.  We look forward to updating you about our progress with our next report.  Thank you for all of your support of our work!  Now that in-person school has returned, there is much work to be done and our team is ready to jump back in!
