Dear Friend,           

Happy Quinceañera - a very important birthday for a young Guatemalan!  This month CoEd turns 15 and we want to celebrate with YOU! Beginning with one classroom of students in 1996, CoEd has impacted more than 100,000 in the years since - and we want to thank you for your support during that time.
You have made this milestone possible and we thank you in advance for helping thousands more kids in the years to come!  
Fall Fiesta Is Almost Here!

Sunset Over Lake Atitlan 

Fall Fiesta 2011: Sunset Over Lake Atitlán is quickly approaching and tickets are selling fast! Remember to send back your RSVP card or purchase tickets online by September 30th to get tickets for $65 each.  After the deadline, tickets will be available for $80 each.  Reserve your seat today!  


Can't make it to the event? You can still take part in the fun by purchasing a Luxury Raffle ticket - you could win a trip to Aspen, Colorado! You do not need to be present to win. Learn more on our website.  


See you on October 15th!

 Celebrate 15 years by attending a Project Tour in 2012!


Since Project Tours began in 1998 with one Rotarian traveling to Guatemala, 571 supporters have traveled with CoEd!  On the August 2011 Snapshot Tour,  27 volunteers traveled across borders to meet the students who benefit from YOUR support.  Travelers interacted with and learned from students in the Textbook, Computers, Culture of Reading (CORP), and Scholarship programs - like these young girls from Chuacorral.  Follow their adventure in a short slideshow of the week's journey.
