Mission Statement

FTC's mission is to break the cycle of poverty through education and empowerment. We work in partnership with disadvantaged families, children and young adults in Guatemala, Central America to ensure they develop the tools they need to break free from the cycle of poverty.

Description

Education For The Children is a US/UK Foundation that supports the School of Hope which is in Jocotenango, Guatemala: an urban area where extreme poverty, gang crime, domestic violence and alcoholism are everyday realities. Food, healthcare, counselling and career guidance at the school remove obstacles to education and enable these students to realise their potential.

One of the best experiences ! I'm amazed how the EFTC foundation doesn't just provide an education, it provides delicious food, health care, counselling and so much love for the children. I came to Guatemala hoping to give or change something for the kids ( a little naive) but I feel like the children have given me so much more! I'm going to miss all the amazing teachers and all the children. Thank you for this wonderful experience !

This Foundation runs a well organised and positive volunteer program that has tremendous impact on the local school and wider community in Jocotenango, Guatemala. There are many options for those seeking to volunteer and placements are organised depending on the individuals interests, skills and Spanish language level. The Foundation supports volunteers throughout the entire process of application, volunteer placement and departure, and has weekly volunteer meetings, teambuilding activities and other social events, which is crucial in building a strong volunteer team. My experience in Guatemala has been amazing due to the friendly and open environment within the school and volunteer community. This is a truly positive and effective volunteer oppurtunity that brings out many smiles and happiness for the children, staff, other volunteers and myself. I could not reccommend this program enough for anyone looking to volunteer overseas and truly make an impact!
