Cooperative for Education  Breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala through education.

“My name is Lidia — I feel privileged to share my thoughts with you.
I am profoundly grateful to everyone who has made CoEd’s existence and expansion possible.
To me, education is liberation from the mental constraints of poverty and ignorance. CoEd’s Culture of Reading Program is a tried, professional methodology that helps students receive a good education. I feel that CoEd’s presence in my school is a miracle, because none of the school districts or schools in my county provide the high-quality training that CoEd provides.

I think that all students and teachers should have this opportunity to join the Culture of Reading Program, because the learnings are necessary. However, I understand that change is gradual.
The best way of demonstrating the impact the Culture of Reading Program has had on my life is to continue applying what I have learned even when no one is in my classroom observing me. I will do this with the conviction that education is the best method of producing a positive change in our Guatemala.” ―Lidia, a teacher in CoEd’s Culture of Reading Program

Interested in a fun, family-friendly service trip? CoEd’s week-long Helping Hands service trip offers you the chance to work alongside students who receive support through CoEd programs.

If you’ve been following the crisis at our country’s border lately, it’s easy to feel angry, no matter where you fall on the political spectrum. Our hearts go out to the children who didn’t have a choice in this situation—the children who were brought here or who felt forced to flee because of overwhelming poverty at home. At CoEd, we believe that all children deserve the opportunity to thrive at home. We believe that all children, no matter where they were born or what their circumstances, deserve the opportunity to determine their own stories. Help tackle the root cause of the crisis by donating to https://cooperativeforeducation.org/donate
