Educaid was created by a group of Guatemalan and US professionals to provide scholarships to indigenous youth so that they may attend middle & high school. Most of these students come from rural areas where a disproportionate number of them only have access to grade school.
Why work with Global Giving?
“A Happy Click”!
The Santiago Institute attends each year hundreds of indigenous youth from the most underprivileged villages of Guatemala. Given the condition of poverty and exclusion of their families, often the first contact of students with a computer has been in the Institute. The resources of the Institute are prioritized to guarantee an integral education and the physical and emotional well-being of the students, therefore it does not have funds to renew the computer lab equipment.
With the purchase of at least 10 new computers, the Santiago Institute will have more tools for young people to improve their learning and this will allow them to acquire better skills and abilities. In this way, it will be more feasible for students to achieve their dreams, to open up to the world to a global vision increasing their development alternatives, and contribute to the transformation of their families and communities.
