Guatemala Education Update: September, 2020

Remote learning requires far more self-direction and intrinsic motivation than the in-person sort. For disadvantaged students, who may have to worry about supporting themselves and their families financially, this can be hard to muster.

As students in the U.S. return to school, we wanted to give you an update on the status of our students as they are nearing the end of a challenging school year.

Since April, students in rural schools have been doing their schoolwork at home. Parents of elementary school students go in person to the school once a week to get new assignments and a small bag of food for student lunches. The government of Guatemala has been providing this food, and now they are giving fruit or vegetables for each student.
We have almost 30 students who still need funding.
Due to the current state of the economy, we are seeing a sharp drop in new sponsorships.  Help us keep these families afloat:
