Our Mission

Education for the Children USA is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit committed to breaking the cycle of poverty for children and teenagers in Guatemala through education and empowerment.

Our Vision

Children and young people from impoverished backgrounds are provided with quality education and empowered to become motivated, confident and able to find employment that will improve their quality of life. This will help them break the cycle of poverty that has blighted generations in this area. They will become leaders of change in their communities and inspire future generations.

EFTC’s values are brought to life through our program strategy that integrates all critical elements children need to achieve success – educational, nutritional, medical, social services and career counseling support
