Happy New Year! I hope you are enjoying the holidays. As we begin a new year I wanted to send a special thank you for your pivotal support for our mobile school program. Thanks to you, hundreds of children in Guatemala have been able to access primary education that would have been denied to them without your support. I have created this page and included some pictures from my recent trip to Guatemala to give you a better idea of the impact you are making.
As a Registered Nurse, a major reason I went to Guatemala was to lead a medical brigade to our partner communities. While the schools obviously serve primarily for education, they also help us bring in desperately needed health resources to the communities as many health programs in Guatemala are run through public schools.
Myself and so many of us in the US take it for granted that we have access to a basic education. I can tell you that these kids definitely don’t. They are working very hard to take advantage of this opportunity, and they and their parents are very proud of what they have accomplished. Thank you once again for making all of this possible.
