The power of education


Give Kids A Chance Foundation strongly believes that education is the only way to break the cycle of poverty. That’s why we’re committed to providing children and youth with access to free, quality education. We want every child to have the opportunities they need to succeed, be it continuing their education, gaining employment, or starting their own business.

In Guatemala, 56% of the population live below the poverty line. Poverty has many consequences in the lives of children: health problems, malnutrition, and obligation to work to the detriment of their education. In fact, over 40% of children don’t finish Grade 6.

After volunteering for six years in the country, we finally found Los Patojos and Juan Pable Romero Fuentes. We saw a dynamic leader and a dedicated team of teachers, who were successful at changing the lives of hundreds of children and youth.
