Inside Guatemala's Schools

Guatemala has the lowest literacy rate in all of Latin America. Public schools are neglected, teachers lack access to training, libraries are rare, and books are practically nonexistent. Over the last 2 years, I traveled to Guatemala four times to photograph community libraries, schools, teachers, parents and students for the US-based literacy nonprofit, Child Aid. The following pictures -- all shot within schools and libraries supported by Child Aid -- are a result of my last trip. Although the situation in Guatemala is sad beyond words, the kids exude a joy that seems boundless. (Stay tuned for more...)

Has to have been a rewarding experience.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.

The Schools in Gautamela City appear to be far better than the Schools in India. I think you have bnot visited India. In some rural areas there is no school building at all. Classes are conducted in open space under the trees. Why talk of libraries?
