Create a brighter future, break the cycle of poverty

Education for the Children (EFTC) is based in Jocotenango, Guatemala and we strive for a future where every child can fulfil their potential. We will stay with them, every step of the way.


EFTC is the only charity in this region to offer completely free educational scholarships to those who need it, from kindergarten through to graduation from University. By supporting EFTC, you give hope to our students where, before it was hard to find.

In Guatemala life can be hard.

With one of the lowest literacy rates in the Western Hemisphere, many people in Guatemala struggle to find employment, or even put food on the table.

Although education is technically free to all, the cost of the required books, school supplies, transport, uniforms, and even food is too much for many families to find.

Their children are left to face hard, desperate futures, lacking in opportunity or hope.

This is where EFTC transforms lives for the better – and you can too.
