Guatemala is among Latin American countries with the highest levels of inequality. Education is not available to many of the poor individuals living in rural communities. 53.4% of children do not have access to education beyond the 6th grade. Lack of education has been linked to other issues that Guatemala struggles with.
We believe education can change the realities many people in Guatemala have lived with for generations.Learn About Our Approach
With basic technology, we connect students to qualified teachers, resources for learning, and continued education. Our model gives students in rural communities the opportunity to attend middle and high school for the first time ever in their own village. In January 2015, we connected Joconal, a village in Eastern Guatemala, with 7th thru 11th grade and will have our first graduating class in October 2016.
Lan Vwa sees the incredible value in providing hope and vision to students through education. We believe that given the proper resources our students will be the beginning of change. Learn more about our impact.
A donation to Lan Vwa is a gift of education to a student in Joconal. Thanks to supporters just like you, we are able to ensure our students continue to receive a quality education. In 2015, 100% of donations from individual donors went directly to our mission, and in 2016, we promise to be responsible stewards of every dollar donated.
