Our children around the world mini-series continues this month with a spotlight on Guatemala!
After the construction of the Community Center for the Integral Development & Growth of children and families in San Juan Sacatepequez, Maestro Cares Foundation once again teamed up with Fundacíon Tigo to remodel and reconstruct three schools in Palo Verde, Jalapa, Guatemala. When we initially visited the schools, we noticed the abhorrent conditions of each one. Classrooms were partially constructed and the bathrooms were unsuitable for the hundreds of students the schools served. We believe that every child and adolescent has a right to education and schools that facilitate healthy and empowered students. The Palo Verde schools opened in September 2019 and they continue serving 4,500 families in the community. Take a look at the before and after pictures below, and check out this month’s episode of #OurChildren Around the World: Guatemala,
featuring our first project in San Juan Sacatepéquez, Guatemala. Don’t forget to follow us on social media as we spend the rest of the month highlighting our projects in Guatemala!
