Project Goal:
 
Lets build a Dining Hall in Guatemala

Education infrastructure improvement Its purpose. A safe living and learning environment is essential for students. An indigenous Mayan Primary School do not have a dining hall and the school board has urged the school to build a dining hall, but they don’t have the funds. Your participation and donations will help the school start over again by building an eating facility for food preparation and best of all, a sanitary place to eat!  Education is the key to improve the quality of life, also helps to learn how to claim their rights and realize their potential in the economic, political and social arenas. It is also the single most powerful way to lift people out of poverty. Education plays a particularly important role as a foundation for boys and grils’ development towards adult life. It should be an intrinsic part of any development to address the gender-based discrimination against the girl child that remains prevalent in many societies.

 

 “Why a Dining Hall?

Hunger plays in education in central american communities a crucial role. Food is the key reason why children attend school in Central America.

kids in central america rural communities in general eat once a day. Their sole daily meal consists of one tortilla with salt and beans. Many children have stopped attending school due to hunger. Their parents spend their days searching for food within the mountains, the food is rationed due to poverty. There is not enough food for everyone in the family. Therefore, a school providing a meal is a big push for parents to send their children. At school, children receive a small lunch. So, we and parents are interested in getting a dining hall at El novillero School for the primary reason of their children being able to be fed at the school dining hall, reason why Reto juvenil  International Costa Rica promote dining halls constructions along the region. We are looking for volunteer to support  this big challenge.
