Technology: a passport to the future

We want to jump on the technology train! The station is a CLICK away! Join us!

Fundación Cometa / Nuestra Sagrada Familia

Children and Youth

Our story

“My name is Yenifer, I am 22-years-old and I’m a tutor at the Nuestra Sagrada Familia Center. At the center, we care, feed, and teach children of limited resources that live in the marginal communities near the Center. I am in charge of 14 children, ages 9 and 10, who, after attending school, arrive at the Center to do their homework under my close supervision.

My biggest challenge is to give the children the proper aide they need by tutoring them with their homework so they may perform better at school. My biggest concern is to provide the proper conditions for growth and development by obtaining the   tools needed to include and provide an up-to-date technological resource in our classrooms. Our staff includes 5 qualified tutors aiding and assisting 78 school-aged children and we currently have access to one desktop for homework and research use , making its use nearly impossible. I wish I could be more efficient! I really need a laptop for my classroom!”

 

TECHNOLOGY, A PASSPORT TO THE FUTURE

We live in a digital era, a time in which technology is an essential part of our daily lives. However, the harsh reality in Guatemala is completely different: thousands of people, especially children, are under privileged. As a country, we only invest 2.8 of the GDP in education, the lowest investment in Latin America.

At the Nuestra Sagrada Familia Child Care Center we work daily with 98 children, 78 of which are school-aged, that attend the Center when they are not at school. The Center is a pleasant safe environment where children participate in recreative, cultural, and self-growth activities, in addition to doing their homework, with the help of several tutors.

We have a problem! We lack as yet the technology to help develop the children’s technological abilities which are essential for their future. That’s why we’ve come to you! We want to jump on the TECHNOLOGY TRAIN! We wish that each of our tutors could have a laptop in their classrooms, for them to be able to properly assist the children, with up-to-date resources that make their learning experience a lot easier, in addition to finding the correct information for their daily homework and research papers.

 

LET’S SHORTEN THE BREACH!

YOU can give us a passport to the future… Our goal is to collect US$2,500.00 to buy five laptops to use in our classroom staring in 2019. Each laptop has an approximate cost of US500.00. So each donation counts!

Be part of the change.

ABOUT US

We are a group of families that strongly BELIEVE in education as a mean of changing the future for the better. We are Fundación Cometa and Fundación Javier Alejos: two NGOs that joined forces to work for the benefit of the children at the NUESTRA SAGRADA FAMILIA Child Care Center.

We support limited resource families with care, feeding, stimulation, and education of their children ages 1 thru 12, while they are at work. The Center is located in zone 5 in Guatemala City, a marginal community located at the out skirts of this area. The population is a socially impoverished with an average monthly income of US$100.00 to US$250.00.

Our mission is to change these children´s lives by giving them the opportunity to receive quality education so they can become responsible and useful adults in the future.

Please help us make the change!!!
