In Guatemala, the education system is also in great need. Although school is free until the sixth grade, students have to start paying for their education after that. As a result, many youth drop out and start working to help support their families. The donation was given to Starfish Impact, a non profit organization helping girls and women receive and education and find a voice, and an impoverished pre-school that had minimal supplies. As with the other locations Bear Boxes has helped, it was gratifying to see that we are able to make an impact and make a change in the education system.
