Project Report | Nov 12, 2020
The Arcadio studies

By Sofia Garcia | Operations Manager

This is an opportunity to share with you the achievements and happiness felt by our Community Coordinator from Chiantla, Huehuetenango, Guatemala.

He is called Arcadio and is 38 years of age. The community where he lives is very rural and it is in one of the colder regions of the country. Recently, Arcadio achieved his university qualification for teaching at middle school level.

Arcadio has been part of our Aula Mágica since 2017, and has been responsible for coordinating and ensuring that everything runs efficiently in the Huehuetenango region.

Arcadio has shared with us his journey, which has brought him to where he is now:

‘When I was 25 years old, I returned to my studies as I had only previously studied until the third grade at primary school. I completed my primary school education through receiving distance-learning classes via the radio. I then continued my education and studied to teach at primary school level. In 2014, I went to university to study to enable me to teach at middle school level.

To study at university was an considerable struggle owing to my lack of the necessary financial resources. I had to leave my community at 5:30 in the morning and had to walk forty-five minutes in order to catch the bus and to arrive at university at 7:45am. Classes started at 8am. I only studied on Saturdays so classes finished at 6pm and I would be home at 9pm.

I want to express my appreciation to all the people who supported me throughout my studies and who made this possible. All of the effort and perseverance that I have put in has been worth it and has certainly resulted in success.

My message to all children and youths is that they continue their studies whatever their age. Education is very important, and if we study, we can change our lives for the better and become better people. If we set our own objectives and goals, we can achieve these with effort and perseverance. Anything is possible and we must dream big! We all have the ability to achieve what we want as long as we apply ourselves and fight to achieve it!

Many thanks in particular to Fred, Mrs Lili, Aula Mágica and to my family for all your support, generosity and faith in me.


We are all extremely proud of Arcadio and delighted that he is part of the Aula Mágica team.
