FRIENDS OF GUATEMALAN CHILDREN INC wrote -Every year Casa Guatemala provides an education to an average of 250 of Guatemala's most vulnerable children. Currently there are 227 children from 17 different rural communities, as well as those children permanently in their legal care, studying at their primary school of which 52% are girls. Nearly 100 children live onsite and while the others travel back and forth from their villages each day. In addition to the regulated curriculum, the students of Casa Guatemala receive classes in English, Computer literacy, Library studies, Art and handicrafts, and sustainable farming practices on the large school farm. The farm not only trains the students in agriculture but also provides a base of fruits and vegetables for the kitchen, where the children also learn to cook healthy and nutritional meals.
