Education is continuing during COVID just altered

As of the beginning of September, COVID-19 seems to be under control in Santiago Atitlan and Chuk Muk.

The elementary and middle school students have not been attending school since the outbreak started. The community is still trying to figure out how to restart the elementary school year safely.

Aldea Maya was able to help all the middle school students by photocopying every students assignments to save the families the cost. These students restarted in September with printed assignments.

The high school students have been receiving printed assignments from their school since March.The high schools are now going to start using on line for classes. As the families are very poor and there is no internet available in the village to individual homes, continuing their education would be difficult. Luckily our office has a large disc and we can receive the internet. 

The university students have been using our office for internet and computers since the beginning of the outbreak as ALL their courses have been on line. Because there has been a need for them to social distance we have had students in all 3 rooms in our office as well as sitting outside on the 3 covered patios. However with the high school students now being on line …our wee office was going to be short of computers.

We are very fortunate that a sponsor family generously donated to help us buy 4 brand new laptops. These we will add to our other computers and hopefully be able to help all the students studying in university and high school.

We are pleased that eventhough the students have found switching to one line studies challenging but are rising to the challenge.
