given for education
We have contributed over $250,000 dollars – as well as thousands of hours on the ground helping to improve the quality and scope of Guatemalan Education for those living in Extreme Poverty. The majority of the money has gone to education scholarships. The remainder has been used in curriculum development and classroom construction. In the latest national testing evaluation in Guatemala, our students ranked in the top 6% in the nation. They are competing against, and out scoring, students attending schools charging $5,000 to $10,000 a year for their education. Our students' cost is $195 a year.
