ATTENTION CANADIANS! You can now directly support CoEd's programs in Guatemala and receive a tax credit for your donation.
Founded in 2015, Canadian Friends of Cooperative for Education is a registered charity based in North Bay, Ontario with the purpose of advancing education. To carry out our purpose, we partner with US- and Guatemala-based nonprofit Cooperative for Education to deliver two types of innovative programs to Guatemalan youth:
Scholarships & Youth Development: Provides the funds students need to stay in school, while wrapping innovative youth development activities and support services around a traditional scholarship. Students attend leadership, professional, and life-skills training and complete community service projects.
Teacher Training: Gives teachers the tools to engage their students in the learning process, transforming children into lifelong learners and critical thinkers. Teachers learn innovative strategies for teaching reading and using textbooks in the classroom.
