wherever there’s education, there’s a way forward.
Fighting poverty with diplomas. Poverty ends wherever education thrives. At Common Hope, we work with Guatemalan families to provide the resources needed to achieve better lives. We believe there’s more to an education than supplies, so from healthcare to housing, becoming more starts with doing more.
Only 18.6% of students graduate from high school
compared to 70% in the United States
More than 30% of children
in Guatemala fail first grade at least once
In 7th grade, students begin dropping out
to supplement the family income
UPCOMING EVENTS FOR February
FOCUS ON LIVING, THRIVE IN LEARNING.
A student can’t learn if they’re distracted by life circumstances. Our programs are here to improve those circumstances.
From early education to high school graduation, learning is how we reverse the trend of poverty.
We aim to positively affect the well-being of a student and their family to ensure school remains a priority.
Poor living conditions cause disease and distraction, so we help provide families with clean, dry and safe homes.
Years of systemic poverty diminish hope. Our program helps parents overcome barriers to build a better life.
