Mayan Dances by indigenous children from Nuevo Amanecer @ Rainbow Cafe

New Dawn is a Guatemalan NGO focused on community development in San Andres Itzapa, Chimaltenango since 1989. They promote health, education and the strengthening of indigenous leaders in the community. They provide learning support and a feeding programme for children and young adults at their school based in the director’s own home.

Their vision is to facilitate self-sufficiency within poorer families and allow them to empower themselves to change their quality of life through education. They also seek to preserve and strengthen the cultural identity of the indigenous Mayan people.

Come and see the show and learn more about this project and the Mayan culture!

Ending Poverty Through Education
Nov 27 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Ending Poverty Through Education @ Rainbow Cafe

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!
