Study Guatemala

Study Guatemala provides free education for disadvantaged children in Guatemala City, Central America. The funds we raise support an educational centre for boys and girls in Zone 5 of the city. The children we support are aged 11-18 and could not otherwise afford to go to school. The qualifications they obtain help them lead a better life. Currently Study Guatemala rents premises in Zone 5 the city. These premises are in bad condition and overcrowded. We have now purchased land and have commenced building our own school. We are trying to raise much needed funds to complete the building in the next 12 months. To learn more about the project and/or to make a donation, please visit:

On Saturday 09th of October, I will be climbing up the Santa Maria Volcano in Guatemala, to raise funds for Study Guatemala and to mark the anniversay of my mum's death 10 years ago. It should take between 5-6 hours to reach the summit (that's if I make it to the summit!!!) and this does depend on how I deal with the altitude, as although I’m now accustomed to the high altitude of Quetzaltenango which is 2335m above sea level, at 1500m higher than Quetzaltenango.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
