Challenge

Educational inequality is a continuous problem in Guatemala. Children from low income families attend overcrowded and under resourced public schools while more privileged children have access to high quality, private education. Public school closures over a period of 2 years due to Covid only increased educational inequality in Guatemala. This project aims to lessen the educational gap between low income Guatemalan children and their priveleged counterparts in both Guatemala and abroad.

Solution

By providing low income Guatemalan children with access to high quality, hands on learning activities we will lessen the educational gap. In 2021 we began realizing hands-on educational activities each Saturday with 20 students 6 to 11 years old. In 2022 we added a Friday elements of art class with 8 students. In 2023 we want to expand our programs to include classes in English, Art History and Beginning Literacy.

Long-Term Impact

Hands on learning activities are not only more fun and engaging, allowing children to better absorb and remember what they are learning, but they also encourage interaction with nature, allow exploration of the 5 senses, engage multiple areas of the brain and promote the development of fine motor skills, which will help the children of San Andres Itzapa unlock their full potential.
