To advance the education of children, older girls and women in Guatemala who have not had the benefit of public education.
About Access Education - Guatemala Children's Fund
Access Education - Guatemala Children's Fund provides funding for children to attend elementary school in the Village of La Union. La Union's children and parents are largely illiterate. The primary school has1000 children registered yet there are more than 2000 more children that don't attend. The new Basico (Middle School) will have over 300 students this year alone.
We are interested in empowering these children through education so they have more choices in their lives.
Access Education provides the requisite uniform, books and the entrance fee. For $100.00 per year a child has the chance to be free and autonomous. Illiteracy makes everyone dependant on the few. Illiteracy is slavery. We want to change this 'One person at a time - One Village at a time.'
