#BeingBossGuatemala

Why Be Boss in Guatemala?

For the past decade Emily and Kathleen have made their life’s work in helping creative entrepreneurs make a living doing what they love. Now, they’re expanding their vision for how they can make a real and meaningful impact by joining CoEd in their mission to break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala through education.

Cooperative for Education (CoEd)

Hey! We’re the folks at CoEd. Since 1996, we’ve been on a mission to break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala through education. In that time we’ve served over 207,000 students—helping them learn to read, stay in school, graduate, and gain critical job skills at rates far above the national average. Those outstanding results have gotten attention from Guatemala’s Ministry of Education, the United Nations, the World Bank, and (most recently) the Obama Foundation.

Tours are a regular part of what we do. We can’t wait for you to join us in Guatemala!
