My dream is to start college, study Hotel and Restaurant Management, introduce Guatemalan gastronomy to other cultures and finish the confectionery course I started at the Technical Center.

WHO WE ARE
We are a program of FUNDAP that was constituted in 1992, and is dedicated to the design, execution, and validation of projects and / or educational programs and professional technical training, which have the characteristics of relevance, innovation, and integrality, directed especially to the most vulnerable Guatemalan communities; to direct their own development through the local organization that allows them to believe in themselves and generate growth, respecting their values and decision-making power.
WHAT WE DO
The program constitutes one of FUNDAP’s avenues for the promotion of development whose objective is: to promote the development of the people and their community, through the access and use of formal education and professional technical training programs. Our purpose is to help the underprivileged population, especially children, young people, and women, have access to training programs that contribute to their integral development. At the same time, we work with key community leaders so that, based on their organization, management, and leadership, they can promote educational actions for their population.
HOW WE WORK
With the vision of serving different segments of the population and their needs, the Education Program has established two different lines of action: the community support sector for education, which seeks access to and permanence in basic education, strengthening local organization, updating and teaching qualification under the principles of access, quality, and equity; the sector of generation of capacities for the labor insertion, whose strategic axes are the competitive and high-level technical business training, the strengthening of entrepreneurial ideas, and education for work, in order to achieve a decent job for everyone.
The supported area has an extension of 34,374 Km2 (13,272 Square miles), which represent 31.57% of the national territory.
