Guatemala Literacy Project - Tour of Guatemala

By Stella Almond - Posted on 16 March 2014

The primary aim of GLP is to break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala through literacy and education, often in the seriously underprivileged Mayan communities.

John Stanton from the Rotary Club of Kenilworth has recently returned from a tour of Guatemala where he visited the Guatemala Literacy Project in action. Rotarians from the USA, Canada, the Cayman Islands, the UK and Rotary International, joined with non Rotarians and GLP staff to enjoy this experience. The Tour covered 15 schools, with presentations on each of the 4 literacy programmes in different locations.

John writes: 'I went see how our Rotary money was spent. I was very impressed by the smooth efficiency of the delivery of the aims of the project. The reception of the project in the communities and the dedication of the NGO staff were an eye-opener for me. I believe the GLP to be a huge success and worthy of much wider District 1060 and RIBI Club support'.
