PULSE: Welcome to Katie’s Place!

PULSE: Welcome to Katie’s Place!
November 16, 2021

Education has the power to transform lives by breaking the cycle of poverty, but access to education isn’t a given in many countries around the world. Guatemala is one of those countries.

Earlier this year, our partners in Guatemala opened a preschool called Katie's Place! Located in the community of La Pinada, Katie's Place will provide education and nutritious food — free of charge! — to vulnerable children.

There are 20 children ages 4-6 enrolled in the school. Every day this group of kids receives a nutritious meal and quality, age-appropriate teaching by a local teacher. This is a very exciting time for families of La Pinada because it is the first preschool to serve the children of their community.

Schools in Guatemala have a high rate of grade repetition and many kids never graduate. Studies have shown that access to early childhood education increases the ability of a child to learn and stay in school. This new school in La Pinada will provide them with a solid foundation on which to begin their educational journey.

Katie’s Place was a dream many years in the making. This is the kind of long-term transformation that our Pulse community of monthly donors makes possible.

When you join Pulse today your gift will be matched for the first three months. This means that each dollar given before November 30 will be tripled. Every donation helps break the cycle of poverty in the lives of vulnerable kids like the ones at Katie’s Place, and in the longer term, their whole community. Will you join Pulse today and join the collective heartbeat of transformation?
