Let’s build together the future of Guatemalan girls

Junkabal Foundation, Together Building a Dream

Colegio Junkabal

Education

Our story

Colegio Junkabal provides integral education to Guatemalan girls for them to become leaders who are able to transform their own communities.
We all dream of a better Guatemala in which there are real opportunities that foster economic and social development so as to provide security, peace, and well-being… But, how can we achieve this if we do not even have access to high-quality education?

Since 1963, Fundación Junkabal has focused on offering this opportunity to Guatemalan women. Even though, both, men and women must be educated; it’s become imperative to prioritize our support to women whose role in society has been minimized, mostly due to cultural reasons.  The world needs a strong and well-educated female that are able to achieve work-family balance and, therefore; become authentic change agents in society.  

For more than 50 years Fundación Junkabal has provided Guatemalan women technical training in several areas.  In  1971 it opened Colegio Junkabal and, nowadays, it is able to serve more than 525 students. The school is located in zone 3, just a few blocks from the city’s garbage dump, an area inhabited by needy families. Through many fundraising activities, Fundación Junkabal is able to provide a large amount of partial and full scholarships to students from this and other parts of the city.

AFTER SO MANY YEAR OF EXPERIENCE, THE TIME TO DREAM BIGGER HAS ARRIVED!

The need for more infrastructure capacity has become evident because of the increase in the number of admission requests as well as of the growth in demand for more technical training programs. In order to continue our work and to provide integral education to a greater number of girls in Guatemala, the construction of new and high-quality infrastructure is a must. The current building has reached its maximum capacity and the classrooms that house the little ones (kindergarten, first and second graders) are dilapidated.

We dream of being able to build a new school that has 30 classrooms, a library, a cafeteria, a recreational room, and sports courts. The project will have to be carried out in 4 phases. The first phase has a cost of $ 600,000.00.

LET’S BUILD THE FIRST CLASSROOM TOGETHER!

Through this platform, we encourage you to join us in the construction of the first classroom. To make this dream come true, we need to raise $ 10,000.
