Monetary donations are used to provide direct tuition assistance to students and for the maintenance of our school. You can find information on how to make cash donations by pressing the DONATE NOW button at the top right of the screen.
We are also in need of equipment for the classrooms. These needs are classified into three different categories, from the least expensive to the most costly. Each of these is a critical need for of our children to realize the full benefits of our program.
While we are deeply grateful to our USA friends for offers of material goods and other supplies, logistically we are unable to easily transport them to Guatemala. However, we are happy to accept cash donations for a designated purpose.
