Breaking Barriers: Eagle’s Nest Scholarship Program to Empower Children towards a Brighter Future

Education is a fundamental right that every child should have access to, regardless of their social or economic background. However, for many children around the world, education remains an unattainable dream. This is particularly true in countries such as Guatemala, where poverty and limited resources often stand in the way of children’s education.

We are dedicated to having a positive influence on the communities in which we operate, and we believe that one of the best ways to do this is through supporting education. Therefore, we are proud to introduce our scholarship program, which providing two children from our local community with access to education and opportunities for a better future.

The Harsh Reality of Education in Guatemala

Guatemala faces significant challenges when it comes to education. According to Guatemala Human Rights Commission, the country has one of the lowest enrollment rates in the region, with devastating 76% of rural, indigenous children never completing primary school. For secondary school, the enrollment rate is as low as 43%.

Poverty and inequality are significant factors that contribute to the lack of access to education in Guatemala. Many families cannot afford the cost of school supplies, uniforms, and transportation, which limits their children’s access to education. Oftentimes, children are forced to drop out of school to support their families or work to help make ends meet.

Eagle’s Nest Creates a Scholarship Program to Support Education

We believe that education is one of the most powerful tools that we can use to break the cycle of poverty and build a brighter future for the next generation. That’s why Eagle’s Nest has been working to create change by supporting the education of local children.

Through our scholarship, we are providing two children, Angel and Juana, with the resources they need to continue their education and make their way to secondary school. We are covering the cost of school fees, uniforms, books, and transportation, as well as providing ongoing support to help ensure their success.

Angel and Juana are two extremely eager kids with big dreams. They are dreaming of becoming doctors or veterinarians, but their harsh reality doesn’t allow them to focus on their goals as they come from families who are struggling to make ends meet. Despite their eagerness to learn, without support they would have been forced to drop out of school in order to support their families. 

Through our scholarship, they are able to continue their way to secondary school and hopefully one day make their dreams come true. We are extremely proud to see that they both started their school year full of excitement.
