Escuela Integrada

IAP has partnered with Escuela Integrada, believing that education provides the door to life for Guatemalans living in poverty. Children attending school at EI’s campus in La Antigua are indigenous and live with the effects of daily prejudice, abuse, poverty and social inequities. EI's holistic approach provides education, spiritual direction, and social opportunities to Maya communities.

About Escuela Integrada

La Escuela Integrada de Niños Trabajadores is a Guatemalan non-profit organization, which has been serving the indigenous Maya since 2002. The school opened in the City of Antigua, initially providing 110 impoverished children vital access to education. EI now provides education, food security, and is pursuing sustainable, long-term economic development solutions for over 450 of the poorest Guatemalan children and their families.

A Bright Future

By providing education, spiritual direction, and social opportunities, EI is breaking the cycle of poverty and bringing a message of hope to those desperately in need.
