The Sisters of Bethany run the school "Agua de Dios" with 252 students in Patzun, another beatiful rural school in Guatemala. Over 120 of those students have not a desk in the classroom, making the learning experience a lot more difficult. We would like to enhance the academic life of those children. If you want to donate a desk, please click here.
The Postal Service in Guatemala has closed indefinitely. If you want to send a package to your sponsored child, it will have to be through a courier.
After 12 years of operations, the private company running the postal service in Guatemala turned the contract over to the central government. The Guatemalan congress and the Executive said that they were not ready to run the postal service, and will consider bids from the private sector. This process may take several months.
We will keep you informed on the development of this matter.
