BACK TO SCHOOL: Tote Change

GIVE TO HELP EDUCATE CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD,

GET A ONE-OF-A KIND, ARTISAN-MADE GUATEMALAN TOTE.

School is starting! Here’s an opportunity for you to have a profound impact in the lives of children around the world by helping fund their education for just $25 a month or a one-time $300 donation.

YOUR GIFT FOR GIVING.

Don’t wait to donate! The first 50 donors will receive a truly unique artisan tote from Guatemala. Handmade by local women, each tote showcases vibrantly colored patterns distinct to the Mayan village of its origin and is a beautiful way for you to “tote change”.

Your donation will not only provide essential education to hundreds of children at Los Patojos, but it will empower local women – allowing them to support their families and keep their rich, cultural traditions alive.

“TOTE CHANGE” TODAY!

Your donation to the Back to School “Tote Change” campaign will support the salaries of qualified and dedicated teachers through Fall at Los Patojos. These teachers are providing students the tools to learn, grow and empower themselves to follow their dreams.
Los Patojos isn’t an ordinary school, but a beacon of hope and positivity for hundreds of students and the community as a whole.

THE CHALLENGE WE ARE FACING.

Education lies at the core of JustWorld’s effort to guarantee impactful world change.

In Guatemala,

  • 1.5 million Guatemalan children are consistently out of school.
  • Schools lack proper training for teachers and are poorly funded, with inadequate book supplies, curriculum guides, literacy materials and exam prep guides.
  • Only four out of 10 children graduate from primary school, one of the lowest completion rates in the Western hemisphere.
  • High school graduation rates are less than 20%.

For the past 10 years, JustWorld and its partner Los Patojos have been making a difference in the community of Jocotenango, Guatemala through education. Thanks to donor support, Los Patojos has grown to be a fully-accredited education program; including nutritious meals, a full time doctor, and arts programming, for hundreds of students in Pre-K through 9th Grade.
