Cooperative for Education (CoEd) is a world-renowned leader in providing books, computers and sponsorships in rural areas of the #Guatemala, where access to education is scarcest. More remarkably, they make students into LEADERS through counseling, mentorship, leadership training, and visits to businesses or universities. Graduates see a 287% increase in income—effectively lifting them up out of poverty—, and 1 in 2 CoEd scholars then help pay for their younger siblings' education. 😱
In a very real way, CoEd completely shakes up the students’ expectations of who they can become, and changes their lives. It’s amazing.
I would love to raise funds to sponsor two star students who recently lost their scholarships. Their names are Maycol and Sergio 😃
• Maycol wants to be a teacher, so he can help his country improve. His mom, who sells the clothes she weaves by hand to get by, is his inspiration.
• Sergio wants to be an electrician. He walks 6 miles to school every day, and works in the field to help pay for his school costs.
• Both of them are studious, high potential students, and both had their sponsors drop off. So, I want to raise $1,680 for each of them to reach graduation. It would be a dream come true for them.
HOW TO MAKE A DONATION
My suggested donation is $20—if most people who see this donate $20, we will get there in no time! I have started the fund by putting in the first $200. My goal is to reach $1,680, which will help these TWO students graduate and become leaders in their communities.
THANK YOU! All the best,
