Mil Milagros/A Thousand Miracles partners with mothers, grandmothers, and teachers in Guatemala to prevent child malnutrition and hunger and to improve health and education in Guatemala. The Ministry of Education reports that just 66% of children in Guatemala complete sixth grade, yet the rates are estimated to be 40% in rural communities like those where Mil Milagros works. According to UNICEF, 50% of the children in Guatemala are malnourished - the highest rate in the western hemisphere . However, the rates of child malnutrition rates in rural indigenous communities like those where Mil Milagros works can exceed 70%.
