Itzapa going strong in 2010 - Guatemala

Over 300 children from 130 families are now into their national school year, thanks to the scholarships we gave out at the start of the year. GVI Phoenix sponsors the children in our schools to go to national school and covers these costs. They will receive formal certificates from their school, enabling them to get a job, and a strong, consistent education from us!

After receiving a new lick of paint over Christmas, Itzapa was looking fresh for the first day of school, as well as for over 50 new children we took in. We now have ten classes (eight learning Spanish, Maths, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences and two levels of English) and the school is once again buzzing with energy.

Thanks once again to past and present volunteers whose contributions are keeping Itzapa alive and kicking!
