Chispuditos and Magical Classroom!

By Sofia Garcia | Operations Manager

Chispuditos and Magical Classroom!

Chispuditos is not only a common slang term in spanish for bright students, but is also the name of a fortified corn-based drink. This drink was created by our friends at the Mathile Institute to tackle malnutrition, anaemia, as well as deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. These are all frequent diseases that affect Guatemalan children up to the age of 6 years old. The corn-based drink, Chispudito provides 21 important vitamins and minerals. Here’s their Facebook if you’d like to take a look: Chispuditos. 

Why is Chispuditos important for Magical Classroom? Easy - because when talking about young children, nutrition goes hand in hand with the brain’s development and therefore academic performance. We want our children to develop both physically and mentally, to reach their potential and to succeed. It is also been shown that Chispuditos has significantly improved the immunity of children, making them less susceptible to repeated episodes of illness.

Chispuditos has been supporting us since 2017 in the departments of Huehuetenango, Solola, El Quiche and Retalhuleu. During this year, 2020, 250 pre-school children have benefited from their support. Owing to the disruption of Covid-19, our activities have unfortunately been forced to stop in all of our Magical Classrooms. However, we have tried to ensure that our children have had uninterrupted access to Chispuditos throughout this period at their home, prepared by the mum or the person who looks after them.

We appreciate the great support that Mathile Institute provides to our program through the Chispuditos drink. It is vital that each of our children has the opportunity to benefit from drinking Chispuditos so that they can enjoy better health and be less vulnerable to falling ill.

If you would like to support our work and allow us to continue the provision of Chispuditos to our extremely grateful children, feel free to support us via our GlobalGiving page; your money would be really appreciated by us at Magical Classroom as well as the children and their families: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/innovative-rural-preschool-led-by-guatemalan-youth/

We send warm wishes to everyone and we hope that you all keeping well.

Magical Classroom, Guatemala
