Changing lives through education

Construction of a University Preparatory School

Rural indigenous youth have little access to public schools in Guatemala. The few private schools that do exist are both financially inaccessible and too few in number to satisfy the demand for education in the region.

Roots & Wings International is raising funds to construct a university preparatory school in the rural highlands of Nahualá, Sololá in the next three years. This school will meet some of the demand for education among impoverished youth in the region, and its curriculum will be based in the culture of the communities.

All students graduating from the preparatory school will become the future Roots & Wings International university scholarship recipients. We believe that fostering higher education among youth in the communities where we work will be the impetus for future sustainable development.
