Great news! As you know, Cooperative for Education (CoEd) was selected as one of 5 top finalists for the prestigious Juan Bautista Gutierrez Prize, the highest award given to a nonprofit working in health and education in Guatemala.
Thanks to all of your online votes, CoEd won the 3rd Prize of $37,500! We are thrilled at being honored as a chosen finalist to receive the recognition and additional resources to put towards our sustainable educational programs for thousands of disadvantaged children in rural Guatemala in the coming year!
Perhaps best of all, being a finalist in the Gutierrez Prize competition put us on the map in Guatemala. CoEd was featured on billboards, news articles, television talk shows, news stations, and in Pollo Campero fried chicken restaurants throughout the country! CoEd and Brenda are now household names, and some great connections have been made as a result.
