Description:

Child Aid is a capacity building organization increasing literacy in Guatemala. We focus on rural villages where illiteracy is disproportionately affecting indigenous people. We achieve this mission though an integrated, four-year program that provides teacher training, librarian training, and the distribution of Spanish language books to schools and libraries. Utilizing best practices proven effective in developing countries, we have third party evaluations confirming fidelity to our program design and are currently conducting a longitudinal study of student outcomes. As our success spreads and more partnerships are made at administrative levels within the Guatemalan Department of Education, we seek to impact systemic change in student educational standards, teacher training methods and school funding priorities through the effective grass roots advocacy of our Guatemalan teachers, principals, civic leaders and school administrators.
