THE STORY:

Mayan Families wrote -

Guatemala has one of the highest illiteracy and lowest school enrollment rates in Latin America, primarily due to the high cost of attending school, and this prevents many indigenous families from receiving an education. We strongly believe that education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and creating a better future for children and their families. That is why we actively promote education in each of the communities we work with.

Our General Education Fund works in conjunction with our Student Sponsorship Program to provide students with the resources they need to get an education they can make the most of. This fund is used to provide struggling students with vital academic support, whilst also assisting them with unforeseen educational expenses not covered under a sponsorship.

Tutoring Program

Our sponsored students often have many obstacles to overcome on the path to success. They often speak an indigenous language at home, so attending classes in Spanish can be a very difficult adjustment. Many have significant responsibilities at home - either working to support the family or cooking and caring for younger siblings. This takes up time that might otherwise have gone to homework. Furthermore, the instability that comes with poverty often has a significant mental impact - it is difficult to concentrate when you're hungry, embarrassed about ragged, dirty clothes, or worried about whether your family will be able to pay the rent.

When our students struggle, we do everything possible to keep them in school. Sometimes just a few conversations with our social workers are enough, but sometimes real academic support is necessary. In those situations, we can provide homework help center-style tutoring.
