The country of Guatemala has a very limited public school system.
Often, if you do not have money to send your children to school, your children remain uneducated.
This problem severely impacts the problem of generational poverty and illiteracy in Guatemala, with over 74% of the population above age 15 being illiterate.
More than twenty years ago, Escuela Integrada Mission School was started in Antigua, Guatemala for children living in poverty.
The children who are engaged with this school system are being educated at no cost, something they would never be able to otherwise obtain in Guatemala.
Most of our students are living in extreme poverty and are not likely to have the opportunity to obtain proper education.
The children often do not have enough to eat and are malnourished. So that the children may have the ability to think, learn and obtain good health, the school offers two nutritious meals and snacks to the children each day.
