Education for the Children (EFTC), founded in 2003, is a registered charity in Guatemala, the UK and US. EFTC’s School of Hope in Jocotenango, a town on the outskirts of Antigua, has hundreds of children and teenagers attending the school. The students also receive nutritious food, healthcare, shelter and community support. It is the very first non-profit school in Guatemala to develop a fully bilingual programme (Spanish/English) that offers students the opportunity to study from kindergarten through to junior high. For graduating students, EFTC offers a full scholarship to study a career of choice.
Volunteer roles include: Classroom Assistant; English Tutor; Academic Tutor; After School Activity Coordinator; Communications Intern; Outreach Department Intern; IT Collaborator; Volunteer Grant Writer; Data Evaluation Assistant; and Administrative Assistant; or a combination of roles.
