Changing the educational landscape
Guiding children from pre-kindergarten through grade six.
In Guatemala only 30% of children finish elementary school. We're helping change that. Every year we help over 250 children from more than 25 communities progress through their early education. Our coursework focuses on language skills, math, health and hygiene classes, sustainable agriculture, and artistic activities.
But we also understand that the education for these children must not stop at grade six. That's why we work with other agencies and groups to secure scholarships and other opportunities for those children graduating from grade six. With our help, and the help of other NGOs like ours, we can give these children the skills and opportunities they need to help change the face of their communities.
Casa Guatemala is excited to now offer summer school opportunities for our children. Previously, only 20 to 30 children had been under our care during the vacation months of November and December. Now that we are officially offering summer school programs, we have increased that number to more than 100.
