Why Guatemala?

With one of the lowest literacy rates in the Western Hemisphere, many people in the Jocotenango area struggle to find jobs or put food on the table. Our ultimate aim is employment in jobs readily available to those with qualifications in neighbouring Antigua and Guatemala City. Our education, nutrition and social support programs give the School of Hope and Further Education students chance for their full potential to shine. By sponsoring an individual student, fundraising or volunteering with us, you could be part of that future.

From the streets to the school

With your generous help, our students avoid having their childhoods cut short. Instead of falling in with local gangs, entering the informal workforce or losing their chance for an education, our students have hope.

With your help, they can learn, grow and succeed.

Guatemala

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.
