BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF NINOS DE GUATEMALA

EVENT DATE: Oct 14, 2016

THE STORY:

Niños de Guatemala believes that building a school is only a tiny part of providing holistic education to students so they can be successful inside and outside the classroom. 

Guatemala has the 4th highest rate of chronic childhood malnutrition in the world and without the energy and nutrients that a good diet provides, students will not achieve their academic potential. 

That's why Niños de Guatemala contracted a dietician to design a menu that provides the students with over 80% of their daily nutriton in their school meals.

The schools also equip the students with all of their classroom materials: paper, pencils, pens, crayons, textbooks, paint, glue. Everything that is taken for granted in many countries, but something that is not provided in Public Schools in Guatemala, which means education becomes prohibitively expensive for many families. Especially as the students pass into higher grades and the materials become more expensive. We also make sure the students have soap and a toothbrush so they can follow the healthy habits that are taught in their classes.

Niños de Guatemala also invests in its teachers as it understands the importance of a leader and mentor in the classroom. We pay our staff a fair wage and provide a wide-ranging capacity building program that has lead to many of our teachers growing professionally and gaining higher postions within the organisation. 

With our eat, equip, educate campaign, you can see exactly what every donation provides for our students. You can invest in nutrition, materials or in our teachers and help us give our students everything they need for success inside and outside the classroom.

--------------------

Para Niños de Guatemala, la construction de una escuela es solo el primer paso para proveer educación holística, de manera que los estudiantes puedan tener éxito tanto dentro como fuera del aula.

Guatemala ocupa el 4to lugar de desnutrición crónica de menores de edad a nivel mundial y sin los nutrientes que necesitan los estudiantes no van a lograr su potencial académico.

Niños de Guatemala, a través de un nutricionista, elaboró un menú escolar que cubre el 80% de las necesidades nutricionales diarias de los estudiantes.

Además, las escuelas de Niños de Guatemala proveen todos los materiales necesarios para el aprendizaje: cuadernos, lápices, lapiceros, crayones, libros, pintura, goma, etc. En las escuelas públicas de Guatemala los estudiantes tienen que comprar todos estos materiales, en muchos casos muy caros para la mayoría de familias, especialmente en los grados más avanzados. También Niños de Guatemala provee jabón, cepillos y pasta dental para que los estudiantes puedan seguir en sus casas con los buenos hábitos de higiene que aprenden en sus clases.

Niños de Guatemala invierte en sus maestros porque reconoce la importancia de tener un líder y un mentor en la clase. Pagamos un salario justo y tenemos un programa de capacitaciones que ha ayudado a muchos de los maestros a crecer profesionalmente y alcanzar posiciones de mayor jerarquía y responsabilidad dentro de la organización.
