The mission of Adopt-a-Village in Guatemala is to create opportunities for education in partnership with the Indigenous Maya people in northwest Guatemala. We achieve this mission primarily through the management of two quality sustainable schools, teaching aid to outlying villages, an educational farm, and multi-village agricultural training programs.
We endeavor to provide practical solutions to the major challenges that face this region, which is far removed from large population areas, schools and job opportunities. We aim to equip Maya families for a better future with educational programs that emphasize leadership and self-efficacy. We make a special effort to ensure that women and girls who historically have been excluded from educational opportunities benefit from our programs.
