Creating Opportunities for Guatemalans is an NGO that supports education for children living below the poverty line in San Antonio Aguas Calientes. In addition to finding sponsorships to keep students in school, we operate an after-school program that sponsored students attend daily in order to complete their homework, learn English, receive Math support, and participate in our reading program. We also provide a daily nutritional snack to each student and we have a Recycle/Reduce program in which the students are required weekly to bring a plastic bottle stuffed with inorganic trash. All the parents of our sponsored students attend a class either in computers, English or sewing. All parents are required to attend our monthly parenting class.
We are always looking for volunteers to teach English, assist students with their homework, and help students with their reading. Join us to learn more!
