CoEd's New Office Unveiled 
Recognizing those who helped CoEd reach new heights
(From left) Ria Northrop, Cat Kenat, Ingrid Tyger, Maya Northrop, Teo Northrop, and Nico Northrop represented the Guatemalan children who benefit from CoEd's programs.
On Wednesday, September 12, CoEd recognized the supporters of our recent capital campaign, Reaching New Heights, with the official dedication of our new and improved U.S. office. Thanks to our generous donors, the board-led campaign allowed CoEd to expand its U.S. facility, increasing functional space and opening the doors to future growth for the organization.

Six Guatemalan-born children, who were adopted into Cincinnati families, cut the ribbon and officially unveiled the new office to about 60 guests. These children served to represent their peers in Guatemala who benefit from your support. Thank YOU for helping CoEd reach new heights, and magnifying our impact in breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala!
Check out more photos of the event on our blog.

CoEd Enters the Blogosphere 
Sharing stories of Guatemala, education, and transformation
CoEd's new blog provides the opportunity to share exciting and inspirational stories.
We are excited to announce that CoEd has launched a blog, Bookmarks: Stories of Guatemala, Education, and Transformation, in conjunction with the dedication of our new U.S. office. 
After sixteen years in existence, we have collected quite a few stories; stories that we want to share with YOU, our friends and supporters. What better way to disclose these anecdotes, narratives and photos than to collect them in one central location (to “bookmark” them if you will) in a CoEd blog?!
