The impact of your generosity and caring

Many indigenous children in rural Central America have little access to a quality education. They often lack school infrastructure, textbooks, and even trained teachers. Their communities don’t have Internet and some don’t even have cellular reception.

Though these children may complete their primary education, they often have no secondary school to go to. Instead of learning, girls get married early and boys must go to work. That’s how dreams come to an end.

We partnered with Change for Children to address this imbalance. To see the impact of the projects we supported in several remote indigenous communities, Wanda Bedard, Josiane Farand and Vida Fereydoonzad travelled to Guatemala and Nicaragua in late August.

On November 11th, we’ll share the perspectives of teachers and students in these communities and we’ll tell you how our Mobile Learning Lab has made a difference in their lives.

The schools we visited may have been hard to reach, but our rewards were plentiful. It was wonderful to see the impact of 60 million girls’ investment in quality education.

Your gift has helped children improve their learning through up-to-date, interactive digital content adapted to specific local needs in well-constructed safe school spaces – even in the most remote and difficult-to-reach communities.

See how your generosity has created a real impact.
On November 11th, join us to help promote transformative change for women and girls in developing countries throughout the world.
