Most girls drop out by grade 3. They are needed to work in the home
Only a few girls finish 6th grade. We have sacrificed to provide an education for our Daughters to finish grade 6. Our Daughters have a passion to go to middle school. Our families are very poor and cannot pay for the tuition, travel and school supplies.
Parents and girls met with the Maya Ixil Education Committee to ask if they could help us go to school. We want to study. We want to learn new skills. A plan was made for Girl Gardens Grow Scholars to raise money to pay for tuition and provide food for us and our families.
VEGETABLES GIVE LIVELIHOOD
Gardens start a cycle of self-sufficiency. Healthy harvests give food to eat and sell to help pay for scholarships.
The deep poverty and high malnutrition rates in the Ixil Maya region of Guatemala results in large numbers of migrant youth who try to cross the Mexico/US border in search of work to help their families. Girls are especially vulnerable to kidnapping, rape and sex trafficking. The alternative for many poor young girls is to become a child bride.
Maya Ixil families do not have the money to pay for tuition for their girls to attend school. $50 pays for tuition and supplies for a full school year at the local Public Evening School.
Girl Gardens Grow Scholarships in vertical Gardens with recycled plastic bottles and worm compost enriched soil. We thank our partner donors for your support. You are in our prayers every day. Please help us pay for tuition, supplies and travel to Middle school Girl Gardens Grow Scholarships . click to donate to Maya Ixil Scholarships
