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.
