Guatemala has the lowest literacy rates in the whole of Central America and almost 50% of children under the age of five suffer from chronic malnutrition. Approximately 75% of the population lives below the poverty line.
OUR SCHOOL IN GUATEMALA
Kaleidoscope Child Foundation made it's initial visit to Guatemala in July of 2017. On that trip, through the generosity of many people on a "Go Fund Me" campaign, we raised enough money to distribute 100 water filters to families at four different schools in the Panajachel region of Guatemala. Our mission in this part of the world is to participate on a project-oriented basis, such as the water filters, to enhance the education of students at existing schools in the area.
