Sponsored by Guatemala Conexions and Spanish School JABEL TINAMIT.
With all pleasure we share with you, the photos we took in the The End Year activity with our weekend tutoring program in Buena Vista. As an idea of coexistence and celebration of Christmas, we invited elders to share with the kids the planned activity. Children presented dances, songs, and a dramatization of Jesus. The best of all this activity is that were presented in Cakchiquel (Mayan language of the community) because the elderly do not understand Spanish. The elderly really enjoyed the activity, they commented that it is the first time in their life to have a Christmas celebration; they were very appreciative of this opportunity and asked to have it back for next year. This event has reflected the leadership exercised by youth in the community, as well as their influence on the attitude of children.
The implementation of this tutoring program led to the following impact:
• More children participating in theater\
• 99% of participating children passed their grade.
• Improved their reading and writing skills
• Children with training in principles and values
• Children improved their Spanish vocabulary through reading.
• Improved their skills in math comprehension
