Cultivate Education and Hope in Guatemala
Millions of Children in Guatemala Are in Desperate Need of Your Help
Guatemala is against all odds. It’s one of the poorest countries in Latin America with more than half the population living below the poverty line. High crime rate and violence are negatively affecting communities and children’s safety.
One of the few safe spaces in Guatemala are schools, but they are poorly funded and many children are forced to drop out of school to help support their family instead.
Global Education Plus believes a quality education drives social and economic change.
- One extra year of schooling increases an individual’s earnings by up to 10%
- In Latin America, children whose mothers have some secondary schooling remain in school for 2 to 3 more years than children of mothers with less schooling.
- 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty if all students in low income countries left school with basic reading skills.

Over the years, we’ve worked directly with students and teachers to provide thousands of educational resources, computers, and medicine.
