Giving Guatemala the gift of Education through tablets and tuition

S.H.A.R.E. funds the costs of High School education for students in Guatemala via scholarships and provides technology for class participation.

Lack of financial means limits access to education.

Basic education is not available to many young people in Guatemala because, simply put, their parents just can not afford it. The costs of education just as in developed nations are not limited to just cost of tuition, students require transportation, a uniform, access to materials for classes such as books, and often need technology such as a table or computer to participate.

Scholarships break the poverty cycle.

For over 20 years S.H.A.R.E. has been funding student to attend high school in many different countries, with one goal that the skills learned will hopefully enable them to break the cycle of poverty. Without additional funding many students are not able to get a high school education, and students in AK'tenamit specifically require the additional cost of a tablet. Donations to the project help young people to fulfill their potential.

Project Leader: John Moore

I have been involved since 2019 and accompanied a monitoring trip to Guatemala in 2020. It was gratifying to meet, shared meals, talk, and walk with the members of remote subsistence communities as they proudly showed off what they’d achieved through their own hard manual work and our financial support. Currently, I am Project Manager for support and partnership projects with Second Mile Haiti, and for Scholarships, providing financial support to indigenous high school candidates in Guatemala and Belize.
