Scholarships in Guatemala – increase in 2014

The positive experience supporting young women to become auxiliary nurses motivated us to search for further possibilities of vocational training.
Recently a school was founded in Lancetillo for nursery school teachers; the vocational training lasts 3 years in total.

Besides we financially support a former pupil of the Escuela Francisco Coll  in Guatemala City whose aim it is to become a qualified accountant.
