Asociación Nuevo Amanecer: Together Let’s Fight the Dropout Rate
In San Andrés Itzapa, Chimaltenango, the Nuevo Amanecer (New Dawn/K’ak’a’ Saqarik) Association saw that there was a high dropout rate among indigenous children in this community because of the lack of parental support. The Association is working hard to help families get ahead through the education and training of children and adolescents, creating values and habits that will lead them to be adults who change society. Through its Comprehensive Mental Health Program, techniques are taught and folk dances are practiced in order for the children to have better personal development. They are also supported by workshops and a meal after school. New Dawn is looking for volunteers who can offer their help and give indigenous children a better education and special attention.
