Our Early Childhood Program is centered around getting children to the necessary developmental stage so that they are ready to learn and succeed in the classroom (ages 0-6). We train Tijonel (women community volunteers) to work with the mothers and infants in their communities. This way, the Tijonels feel empowered to help their community and each of our communities is equipped with an early childhood expert! Learn more about our Early Childhood Program here.
During the last February break of our high school careers, we returned to Guatemala with 8 other Hingham students and 88 students from other parts of MA and CT.
As we conclude another inspiring service season in Guatemala, we have to acknowledge the gratitude we feel towards the local communities who welcomed and worked alongside us.
