Description:

Cooperative for Education (CoEd) is a Cincinnati, Ohio and Guatemala City-based nonprofit organization established in 1996. Through our programs, we strive to address the root causes of poverty in Guatemala, rather than merely treating its symptoms. Currently, our organization serves more than 32,000 mainly Mayan youth with Textbook Programs, 15,000 with Computer Centers, 9,000 with Mini-Libraries, 1,500 with literacy advancement programs, and 160 with scholarships.
CoEd delivers sustainable programs that thrive and survive into the future. Our innovative revolving fund model requires beneficiaries to make a small financial contribution to their school’s program, giving them a vested interest in its success. CoEd also builds local capacity by training community members to manage and maintain the programs.
