In collaboration with teachers, we deliver school supplies to improve the school attendance rates of Maya Q’eqchi’ students in rural areas. The project also includes sexual and reproductive health education as a component, in the face of the problem of teenage pregnancies. We raise awareness among families about the importance of keeping their children in school.
