Friends in Guatemala – Update

Published: Aug. 8, 2020


Dear Supporters of Friends in Guatemala,

At our July 30 meeting, the staff and board of directors of PROGRESA, the Friends Guatemala Scholarship Program, agreed that an in-person program is not feasible this year. Because of the success of Progresa’s virtual programming so far this year, we have decided to launch an on-line Teaching English experience for students and volunteers from November 30 through December 4, 2020.

To bring everyone up-to-date on what’s happening with our program in Guatemala, we wish to invite you to a Zoom meeting:

12:00 noon PDT
Saturday, August 22, 2020
Zoom Meeting ID: 896 0297 6761 Passcode: 027946

The Progresa staff and a few of our students will be there to describe economic, social and educational conditions in Guatemala and answer questions. Please try to join us!

from Miguel Angel Costop, Progresa (to be 8/22/2020)
