Heartfelt Reflections on a Week in Guatemala 
Meaghan Kindregan describes the joyful energy seen on a CoEd Snapshot Tour
On the final night of a CoEd Tour, participants are given the opportunity to discuss their time in Guatemala.
On the February 2012 Snapshot Tour, we caught Meaghan Kindregan on video discussing her experience on CoEd's Snapshot Tour.
Expanding CoEd's Reach 
CoEd joins the Ministry of Education in a nationwide textbook distribution effort
    Students unload their new books from CoEd's Textbook Team.

For the past two months, we’ve been proud to contribute to a nationwide effort in Guatemala. Cynthia Del Águila, the newly appointed Minister of Education—and a friend of CoEd for several years now—initiated a new program to deliver promised textbooks to primary schools in the rural areas of Guatemala. Rolando, José María, and Carlos Luis from our Textbook Team represented CoEd in the effort to deliver truckloads of books to rural primary schools.

CoEd’s own Textbook Program began helping underserved middle school students in 1996 with the knowledge that the government was responsible for providing books for grades 1-6. In the past, the Guatemalan government promised to deliver books to rural primary schools, but the system was so inefficient that schools were lucky to get their books by the middle of the school year, if at all. This year, the Ministry partnered with shipping companies, nonprofits like CoEd, and other organizations who have a stake in the success of Guatemalan students to ensure that the books arrive on time.

CoEd’s Textbook Team spent weeks on the bumpy, often dirt roads in the highlands to ensure schoolchildren receive better educational opportunities this school year. Partnerships like this will continue to reinforce CoEd’s mission by giving students a firmer foundation of literacy before they enter middle school and have the opportunity to use CoEd textbooks or computers—ultimately helping them to break the cycle of poverty.
