|Miguel Angel Asturias Academy |
The nonprofit Miguel Angel Asturias Academy was founded in 1994 to address Guatemala's educational crisis. Located in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, it serves more than 200 K-12 students, with an emphasis on children from the most vulnerable sectors of society.
Devoted to creating informed, critically-thinking, socially conscious citizens, the academy seeks to empower its students to become leaders and agents of change within their communities. It hopes to become a model for the transformation of Guatemala's education system, giving all children access to a quality education, and laying the foundation for a just, prosperous Guatemala.
