Guatemala

In Guatemala, we teach English to at least 1.000 children in twelve public schools of Santiago Atitlán and to many adult groups. We have an agreement with the Ministry of Education to provide children in primary school with a basic level of English.

Tourism is growing rapidly in Central America and Santiago is surrounded by several touristic villages. Our students are mostly indigenous, hence their level of Spanish is not high and their access to the job market is difficult. By teaching them English, we help these children getting a job in the near future.

We provide free English classes to children and adults in Diriamba, a small town in Nicaragua. Classes are given in eight public schools based on the agreement signed with the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education. At APAN, our local partner, adult English classes are also offered once a week for groups of no more than 15 people.

All teachers are volunteers. There is always one long-term volunteer in Diriamba coordinating the project. Our English teaching methods are adapted to each group level and age, with an emphasis on continuous improvement and no gaps between volunteers.
