The AllPeopleBeHappy foundation has awarded a 3-year (2023-2025) $100,000 Challenge Grant to Project Alianza for expansion into Guatemala training of local women as Community Educators. Specifically, Project Alianza will 1) partner with local organizations in Guatemala to co-sponsor and house community educators who will teach reading and writing foundational skills to children either during the school day working along regular schools or after school in tutoring sessions, and (2) infusing rural homes with literacy content by way of radio broadcasts and hands-on activities. The goal for the program is to hire, train, and deplore 3 Community Educators in year 1, and in years 2 and 3, deploy 27 more Community Educators. The hoped-for result is to improve the educational outcomes of 20,000 Guatemalan children through Community Educators and the radio programming.
