Mission Trip to Guatemala in October!

May 17, 2013

We are really excited to tell you about our October trip — a trip to really make a difference in the lives of school children and teachers!  Take your choice of what you would like to do while on this trip– help with repairs and building or teach Vacation Bible School.

We will be working at a small school in the western highlands of Guatemala.  This remote little school is situated high on a volcanic mountain and contains only 3 classrooms and 3 teachers. Because of limited resources they need our help with repairs and with a building project at the school and have also invited us to present VBS to the children at the school.

You will have time to:

  • your choice of work projects — building/repairs or teaching Vacation Bible School
  • meet the artisans we work with and visit their communities and homes
  • maybe see how they make those delicious tortillas by hand
  • learn a little of a Mayan language – T”zutujil, Kakchiquel or K’iche
  • visit other villages in the rural highlands  and see beautiful Lake Atitlan
  • see the colonial city of Antigua
  • share God’s love while helping our neighbors in Guatemala
  • maybe teach a little English in our spare time at the school
  • view weaving demonstrations on a backstrap loom and foot pedal loom
We will be building a new kitchen stove for the school!

Children of Choacruz

September 12, 2011

Education And More is fundraising to help children attend school.  We have the opportunity to help the children in our Choacruz artisan group by purchasing the school supplies they need to begin school in January.  The school year in Guatemala begins in January and continues until October when they have a 2 month vacation.

One child — one child at a time can be helped with your donation of $25 to give a child the opportunity to attend school.

These are impoverished children whom have very little chance to go to school without help.  Your donation will purchase a backpack / bookbag and the necessary school supplies for the entire year of school.

 

Won’t you please help with your donation!  You may use the donation page on our website or send a check to Education And More, P.O. Box 201, Burlingame, KS  66413

— please be sure to tell us that the donation is for the “Children of Choacruz”

 

We are presenting photos of some of the children that will benefit from your help!

Won’t you help us educate these children?  Donate Now!
