Since 2003, Education For The Children has worked with the young people and families from Jocotenango, Guatemala to access free quality education, nutritious food, health and social services. We empower them with skills to be successful and inspire future generations.
We are a secular organization with 501(3) status in the United States that works with a legal partner in Guatemala, "Fundacion Par el Desarrollo Comunal" de Huetenenango. We achieve our mission primarily through the management of two quality sustainable schools, teaching aid to outlying villages, an educational farm, and multi-village agricultural training programs.
Since 1996, Cooperative for Education has been committed to breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala through education. Our sustainable textbook, computer, reading, and youth development programs have transformed the lives of more than a quarter million students. We empower rural Guatemalan communities to transform their own quality of education, with a focus on evening the playing field for girls, who are typically excluded from education.
At Allied Foundation we want to be the engine of development and leader in creating opportunities for youth employability in Guatemala.
Our team trains, teaches and provides skills, because we believe that with education we generate a greater impact, provide agency and build resilience in the youth and future generations of Guatemala. Our main project is our English academy and through scholarships we support the educational process of the applicants to our programs in order to provide them with job opportunities in the BPO and call center sector.
