Our non-profit organization in Guatemala, Esperanza Juvenil, has benefited from the wonderful work of Child Aid in two ways. First, Child Aid has donated a number of excellent, high quality, hardcover children’s books for our library. In the context of Guatemala, where it is extremely difficult and expensive to get books for children, this has been a tremendous resource. Second, our teachers and staff have participated in Child Aid’s training which has helped them to develop skills to promote literacy and a love of reading with our children. Over the last five years, we have seen and measured a high rate of improvement in our children’s reading skills and passion for reading. We thank Child Aid for being a key partner in this effort!

I run a very small non-profit program in an indigenous mountain village in Guatemala, where we have established both an elementary and junior high school. We began our collaboration with Child Aid last year, when we were fortunate enough to send two of our teachers to Child Aid’s teacher training program. Although our teachers are dedicated and want their students to receive a quality education, they are a product of an educational system that recently was ranked 125 out of 133 nations evaluated by the World Economic Forum. Having never been exposed to books themselves in their homes as a child or at school as part of their education, our teachers lack the necessary skills to teach reading even though they now have access to various materials and resources. Child Aid’s programs provide the teachers training in stimulating a desire among their students to read in a culture without the resources or the tradition of reading. They also focus on techniques to develop reading comprehension, a glaring void that existed in our curriculum. Child Aid’s teacher training program has already helped us tremendously in our attempt to raise the level of education in our village.

In addition to the teacher training, we have been privileged to receive for a nominal charge a generous donation from Child Aid of books and educational material. It is rare that children in Guatemala have an opportunity to utilize books in the classroom and even rarer that they can take them out of the school setting and enjoy them at home. Child Aid has provided this unique opportunity to the children in our community.

Child Aid is a valuable and essential resource to the people of Guatemala and is deserving of your support. I hope that they will be able to expand the program in Guatemala to reach even more educational institutions.
