In rural Guatemala, the needs are extreme. Poverty, hunger, child marriage, poor education, and limited healthcare are all very real barriers to education.
The Qach'umilal (or Guiding star in the Mayan language K’iche) Girls Education and Leadership project not only promotes access to school for girls, it also helps to keep girls in school, while helping to build self-esteem and leadership skills.
Girls’ education is the single best investment we can make to fight poverty around the world. Girls who stay in school are healthier, earn more money as adults, start families later — and most importantly — are more likely to make sure their sons and daughters also go to school, breaking the cycle of poverty. Education is an investment that pays off now and for generations to come.
Together, CARE and Hain Celestial’s personal care brands Alba Botanica®, JĀSÖN® and Avalon Organics® are inspiring confidence, creating leaders and keeping girls in school.
