Computers, training, teachers, reading, students, sustainable, Rotary, Guatemala, service projects, literacy, south America, books, education

We measure and test our programs to make sure they do the job:

%

Reading comprehension improves by 50%.

%

Dropout rates fall by 46%.

%

95% of graduates get a job or keep studying.

%

53% of graduates pay for their siblings to go to school.

We use sustainable program models that work far into the future:

How do we do it? By investing in people and by requiring them to make an investment too.

As a result, some of our projects have been running for over 20 years.
