School the World is an international nonprofit based in Boston and working in Central America. We have a mission to ensure that children are finishing primary school knowing how to read, write, and with basic math skills. Since our founding, School the World has built 60 schools in Guatemala and Honduras, built 318 classroom libraries, trained over 4,463 parents, and launched teacher training programs for 255 teachers.
Become a School the World World Changer! Spend the months before your Spring or Summer break fundraising for a nine-day trip in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Funds you raise will go directly towards the materials and supplies to build a school in Guatemala. You will have the opportunity to visit that village over your spring or summer break to help complete the school construction in time to join the dedication ceremony with the community. You will also have the chance to explore the culture and history of Guatemala through various excursions!
