Our Newest Textbook Program Teachers Sound Off

Wednesday, December 7th, 2016

This year our Textbook Program expanded to 16 new middle schools in the regions of El Quiché, Chimaltenango, Sacatepéquez, Quetzaltenango, Totonicapán, and Sololá. In June we surveyed the teachers at these schools to get their thoughts on how the program has begun to affect their teaching and their students. We were so excited by what they said, and you deserve to hear it! This is what your support is accomplishing in Guatemala:

What differences do you see as a teacher now that you have textbooks and training, compared to when you didn’t?

Turns out that Confucius knew what he was talking about. At CoEd, we try to involve the teachers and students receiving the training, books and computers as well as the donors who so generously give of their time and money. This way, we can all come to a greater understanding and appreciation for what a big deal education is for these students. Looking for a way to get involved? Why not come down to Guatemala with us to experience firsthand these life-changing programs? You might just find that your own life changes as a result.

There’s even a way to travel with CoEd for free! Sign up today.

Who is Your Hero?

Maya Angelou Quote

It’s a bit of an understatement to say that we’re grateful for the amazing supporters we have at Cooperative for Education.  You make it possible for thousands—yes THOUSANDS—of students in Guatemala to have textbooks, computers, scholarships, and better trained teachers each year.  And that’s a pretty heroic move.  Thank you.

Something to ponder as you drive home today–who is your hero and how do they make the world a better place?

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
