Thanks again for supporting our work.

The majority of rural, poor children are ill-prepared for the first-grade.  The February 2006 World Bank report states: 30% of children in the Central American countries fail the first-grade; many drop-out at this point.  Often parents can’t read or write; many work long hours and children are cared for by older children. Over the last 6 years, there has been progress but the needs are still great.

Our program is small and very simple. We find graduated but unemployed teachers and offer to put them to work in their communities as preschool teachers. Our sponsors’ donation gives them a stipend each month and provides the classroom materials. They have to find the space to hold the classes and manage all the relationships with parents and leaders in their community. 

They are social entrepreneurs.
