Review for Education And Hope, Norwalk, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Education and Hope defines the "whole child" approach to education and as a result, has lifted up an entire generation of Guatemalans. Having donated and volunteered with this organization for 20 years, I have witnessed the needle being moved in the Quetzaltenango community. The program has not only produced highly successful high school graduates but also numerous college graduates (Guatemalan and US) and this success has been reinvested back into the Guatemalan community. Your money is hard at work with Education and Hope.

Review for Education And Hope, Norwalk, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our family is a long time supporter of Education and Hope - 20 years! We have proudly donated money and time to this wonderful organization and have seen first hand the incredible life-changing work that is transforming an entire community. I have traveled to Guatemala twice. The first time with both of my daughters and this past summer with my middle daughter (high school junior). The reward of seeing and participating in the pure love that is Education and Hope is hard to put into words. The program currently serves 105 children on a daily basis in the after school program but also provides employment to mothers and women in the community as well. I love the “nurturing the whole child” approach that Julie Coyne (Founder) takes – feeding the mind, body, soul and heart. Our volunteering included a trip to the market, meal prep and serving, classroom and one-on-one academic help, exercise class, guided meditation, soccer and basketball games and so much laughter! This program is so incredibly well run and makes every dollar go as far as possible with very, very low overhead. So proud to be associated with Education and Hope!
