Every child deserves a fun, stimulating education that makes a difference in their life. We work across the Americas to support children’s educational initiatives.
Mayans in Guatemala are often times the recipients of discrimination. The statistics are alarming, with 7/10 Mayan girls pregnant, 50% by familial members.About 15% of Mayans who attend school graduate, and only about 50% of boys and 30% of Mayan girls even have the opportunity to go to school to begin with. Luckily, this is starting to improve.
Little Known Help Zone is alarmed by these numbers, and supports education. $360 is enough to send one kid to school for a year and provide all the educational expenses needed. In addition to the fees to visit school, often times there are situations at home that make success in school difficult. This is why Little Known Help Zone also funds additional needs of the student, including graduations fees and comforts at home like beds.
Little Known Help Zone will be partnering with mayanfamilies.org, Puedo Leer Library, La Esperanza Grenada.
Past partners include Roatan Children’s Fund, Honduran Children.
We have worked on this project from 2011-2017.
