New pre-school opens doors in El Zapatillo, Guatemala

New pre-school opens doors in El Zapatillo, Guatemala

girl holding school supplies In February, we started classes in our brand new preschool building in the Mayan jungle village of El Zapatillo. 

Thanks to our generous church partners Maple City Baptist Church for providing the desks and The Pointe Church for funding the construction of the new building. 

We kicked off the school year in our third community to offer early childhood and literacy training. This school will prepare children with and without disabilities to enter the over-crowded public school and give them the ability to study and read on their own. These classes are crucial in a community that, once students enter public school, there will only be one or two teachers total to teach 60 children grades one to six. 

Because of your support, we were able to supply children with school bags and school supplies to prepare them for the year. Thank you!
