That young people from all backgrounds have the ability to access quality education and opportunities for rewarding employment.
Driven by a commitment to equal opportunities, the Education for the Children Foundation has worked with young people and families from the Jocotenango area since 2003 to access quality education, nutritious food, healthcare and social support. Through a highly individualised holistic approach we strive to empower young people with the skills and confidence to be successful in their chosen careers.
Our holistic approach
We educate, nurture and empower young people using a four pillared approach:
Quality teaching, free for everyone
Fuelling learning and fighting malnutrition
Medical checkups and health education for students and parents
Counselling and vital support for vulnerable students and family members
