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.
