I first learned about the work of Limitless Horizons Ixil in 2009, and have been continuously impressed by their dedication and work in Chajul, Guatemala. The context in which they work is an extremely difficult one, with numerous social, political, economic and historic factors creating barriers for local youth. However, LHI has found an extremely efficient way of turning difficulties into opportunities, thus supporting local youth with the necessary tools to move forward in their education and become inspirational leaders on many levels an in a variety of contexts. LHI employs a multifaceted approach to education that is both culturally relevant and motivational for local youth. During the past two years I have followed their progress, and, as I mentioned, I am constantly impressed by their progress and work in the area of education. From creating a community library to actively seeking support for local students, LHI is creating change in a major way while opening doors of opportunity for the community that they serve.
