TEN FE School in Santiago, Guatemala
"Human learning presupposes a specific social nature and a process by which children grow into the intellectual life of those around them." -Vygotsky,1978
A PLACE OF LEARNING
One building, two purposes. A building to serve as a grade school during the day and as a youth community center during the evening. This will be a place where children can have safe spaces, learning opportunities, and a sense of belonging. We want children to not only learn, but to thrive and excel. Our goal is that as they grow into educated adults, they will help to improve the community around them. These fortunate students will continue to 'Pay It Forward' by 'Giving Back' to their communities and neighbors.
TEN FE is building our school and community center as we speak! However, we still have a lot of opportunities for you and your groups to help! Interested in sponsoring:
