Update (May 2018)

We are pleased to report that Maribel is now in grade 5 and doing well at her new school.

With your support, TEW would like to continue to help Maribel and her family.  $25 per month will cover school supplies, clothing, etc.


In 2017, Maribel was in grade 4 at a school adjacent to the basurero (garbage dump) in Guatemala City.  She wants to be a medical secretary.  Her home consisted of 1 tiny room with corrugated steel shack, with meals cooked on a wood stove using contaminated water.  Her mother, a single parent with 5 children, works in the garbage dump, 15 hours a day, 6 days a week recycling plastic and earns $10CA per day.

In collaboration with the school principal, Together Education Works (TEW) arranged to send Maribel to live in residence at a more progressive school located near Guatemala City, starting in January 2018.  Although Maribel’s tuition is fully paid for, she needs to pay for some living and incidental expenses.
