Literacy brings a brighter future for the next generation.

Many Guatemalan children leave school early, as families cannot afford the costs associated with sending their children to school or rely on their children's economic activities to supplement family income. For children who do attend school, inadequate infrastructure and lack of literary materials necessary to support students' reading are aslo significant barriers to education.

Since 2010, Pueblo a Pueblo's Pathways to Literacy Project has enabled 580 elementary school students to access literacy resources and activities. By establishing child-friendly libraries in primary schools, ensuring access to appropriate and engaging reading materials, and strengthening the capacity of teachers, Pueblo a Pueblo aims to foster a lifelong love of reading.  In early 2014, we began work on our newest school library project in the village of San Antonio Chacaya.
