Breaking the Cycle of Poverty through Education, from Kindergarten to University


Our Work

We work with disadvantaged children and their families to break the cycle of poverty through education and empowerment. We created the School of Hope, a Primary and Secondary School that educates 475 children and supports another 180 schorlaship students who attend High School and University.

Guatemala

The statistics of Guatemala read more like those of Sub-Saharan Africa than the Americas.

Guatemala is a beautiful Central American country that suffers from serious social issues. Although officially education is free to all, the costs of books, school supplies, transportation, uniform and food mean that many families cannot afford to send their children to school. Guatemala has the lowest literacy rates in the whole of Central America and almost 50% of children under the age of five suffer from chronic malnutrition.
