If you are who you should be, you will set the world ablaze!
– St. Catherine of Siena
Almost all of the adults in attendance never even had the opportunity to finish elementary school. Now, their children will have the chance to study through junior high near their own homes.
When we visit with Mayan villagers, the first thing on their mind is almost always the same – their children. They desperately want their children to have a better life – with more opportunity – than they ever could have.
This school is a small step towards making those parents’ wish for their children come true.
Donations from generous individuals made this dream possible. Donate to the School!______________________________________________________________________________
It was also made possible due to the hard work of village fathers, who sacrificed their time and money to finish the school.
Classes have begun for the first group of students. This year the school will host 7th grade students. A grade will be added each year until the equivalent 9th grade.
We still need your support to make the school a success. This year we hope to add a computer lab and vocational classes. Please consider making a donation – to bring hope to the Mayan Q’eqchi children of the Rio Dulce.
