Supporting education through health is our number one priority. In communities with limited resources, a school preventive health program provides a first line of defense against disease and illness.
Meet Shared Beat Scholarship student Iris
We are passionate about inspiring, empowering and enabling people to redefine their lives. Through years of providing healthy life tools and dependable service, we are slowly but surely seeing and being the change. Our hope is to one day work ourselves out of a job.
Our focus is supporting educational projects by providing preventive healthcare programs in schools. The programs are building blocks for future health not only for the students but their families and communities as well.
Why is helping in Guatemala so important? On average, Guatemalan children attend only four years of schooling and only three out of ten students graduate from sixth grade. The poverty rate in Guatemala is very high. According to the World Bank, 59.3 percent of the population lives below the poverty line. In addition, 23 percent live in extreme poverty. The increase in violence and immigration changes also make it more important than ever to provide support to our Guatemalan neighbors.

Healthy habits established in childhood often carry into adulthood. Educating children and their families to preventive illness will help them stay healthy throughout their life.
