Scholarship Graduate Survey: Results Are In

Friday, May 27th, 2016

There is nothing like KNOWING that you have changed someone’s life, and our recent survey of Scholarship & Youth Development Program graduates proves that YOU have done just that. Scholarship graduates see the world differently when they finish the program, and go on to achieve things that once seemed like pipe dreams to them, their families, and their communities.

Education in Action Series: Computers

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Those numbers don’t lie. Computer skills are absolutely crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala.  Remember Ivonne Barrios? She finally had the opportunity to use technology in the classroom, and is now ready to take on the world! Without computer skills, Ivonne wouldn’t be qualified for even the most basic of entry-level jobs.

How would your life be different without computer skills? Would you still be able to perform your job? 

Education in Action Series: Culture of Reading

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

What does a classroom in the Culture of Reading Program look like?

When you enter a CORP classroom you’ll see students reading aloud in small groups, teachers gathering their kids into reading circles, or students creating their very own storybooks. This may sound like a typical classroom in your hometown, these are remarkable milestones brought about through the hard work of trainers and teachers with a ton of heart for their students. We’re continually amazed and encouraged by them!

What surprised you the first time you entered a classroom in a developing nation? 

Scholarship Graduate Survey Infographic

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

We always knew that our scholarship students were rock stars, but it’s nice that our latest round of survey results continues to prove just that. And these numbers don’t lie–CoEd’s Scholarship & Youth Development Program is changing lives in Guatemala.

We surveyed CoEd’s scholarship program graduates, and are bursting at the seams to share the results with you.

Why is this study important? Because measurements like this allow us to gauge the efficacy of our programs, measure the impact of our youth development component on students, and show the ripple effect that happens from helping just one student (check out that 92% stat—not bad, eh?).

Take a look at the numbers, and, if you like what you see, head over to our scholarship webpage to meet the middle school and high school scholarship hopefuls in need of your help. Given a chance, we know they will become part of the success story too.

What You Accomplished in Guatemala in 2013

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Can you believe that January is already halfway over?? Those New Year’s resolutions you made may have already come and gone (if not, let us help you keep them!), but we think that there’s still time to look back on all that your generosity accomplished in 2013.  Some programs underwent major face-lifts , while others continued to steadily grow.

Read on to see everything that YOU helped us achieve last year. We’d say that we’re happy with the outcome… but that would be a biiiiit of an understatement

Infographic: The Benefits of Educating Girls

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

Today’s post is all about girl power (the Spice Girls would be so proud). Educating girls in developing countries has gotten a lot of buzz lately with the release of the Girl Rising documentary and we were lucky enough to be at the Cincinnati showing a few weeks ago.

The timing is perfect because the CoEd scholarship program is expanding and our focus is on supporting the education of girls in Guatemala. Nearly 70% of the scholarships offered will be to educate girls in the developing world.  Why is this such a big deal? Because educating girls yields a higher rate of return than any other investment available in the developing world. Whaaat? Talk about girl power—let’s hear it for the girls!

Infographic: Why Does Education in Guatemala Matter?

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Allow us to paint a vivid picture for you of what a good education means for a Guatemalan student and how difficult it can be to attain through our new infographic.

This is why CoEd provides textbook, computer, literacy, and scholarship programs to break even one student out of poverty. Thanks to your support of CoEd’s programs, more students are completing those 12 years of education necessary to support a family. And we think that matters a great deal.
