Mission

We are dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala through education.

Our educational programs strive to address the root causes of poverty in Guatemala, rather than merely treating its symptoms.

Vision

We believe that all humans are born with abundant potential—we are destined to become creators, healers, innovators, builders, educators. We yearn to leave the world better off than we found it.

But a child born into the generational cycle of poverty is too often stripped of this destiny. We believe that every child, no matter where they were born or what their circumstance, deserves the opportunity to determine their own story.

That’s where education comes in. Education is about justice. Where poverty robs us of opportunities, education gives them back. Education levels the playing field. Education opens doors.

We have a vision of a Guatemala transformed through education: a future in which every Guatemalan child learns to read and graduates high school with the skills they need to thrive. Is this a tall order? Yes. But is it possible? Absolutely. Because we know that when we empower young people with the opportunities to break out of poverty, not only will they determine their own stories, they will shape the destiny of their country.
