Plan introduced this education methodology back in 1999 in state schools in rural Guatemala. The concept of active schools is to train teachers to teach mixed school levels in an participatory way. In the majority of schools in rural Guatemala, there are several school levels in one same class. Plan provides the teacher training and school materials. There are now 350 Active Schools in rural Guatemala, teaching 3,500 children. Children are taught in both indigenous Q'chi and Spanish. The school we filmed was in the district of Alta Verapaz. The story is told by a couple of students and the school head teacher.

10-year-old Elvin works in a landfill every day, gathering recyclables to earn an income. 12-year-old Ana Cristina had to drop out of school last year because her parents could no longer afford her tuition and school supplies. These are just some of the stories you'll find among some of the poorest communities in Guatemala. Help us break the cycle of poverty. Sponsor a child for just $35/month and you'll cover his or her tuition, school supplies, lunchtime meals, healthcare, and more. http://goodneighbors.org/child-sponsorship

I created this video to contribute to the 2012 Colegio Americano de Guatemala Teacher Talent Show, and to commemorate the adventure of walking to school with Phil for three years.

Four in ten children in Ciudad Quetzal, Guatemala City are unable to complete elementary school, reducing their chances of employment and growth. Our team in Guatemala has been continuously working towards creating opportunities for children from disadvantaged homes in this region. Following the successful construction of our first school in 2016, the Capgemini team completed the second school in 2017, now enabling more than 350 children to study in schools with adequate resources. Watch the video to learn more about how Capgemini Guatemala’s team members have been making a difference to the children in Ciudad Quetzal.
