Breaking Educational Barriers

Education in Guatemala has been more difficult this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since mid-March, the students have not been able to go to school, nor have they been able to learn online because Guatemala has not been able to implement an extensive technological infrastructure in all of its schools, many students don’t know how to use technology, and few have computers in their homes.

In the early days of the pandemic, the students had nothing to study. Because of this, teachers began looking for ways to keep educating their kids without exposing them to the contagion of COVID-19.

They found that the best way was through home visits to bring students homework and worksheets so that the students keep learning with their family’s support.

The students supported through our program are making a concerted effort to succeed. We are looking for ways to continue supporting these kids so that they can finish the school activities that their teachers are leaving in their homes.

So that our students can do their homework this month, we brought them school supplies such as paper, crayons, pencils, paint and books, with the goal that the students can continue realizing their scholastic responsibilities as these academic activities can be done from their homes manually. Having school supplies is necessary to perform these tasks and their families would not be able to provide them because of the economic situation right now.
