After six consecutive months of fulfilling the recertification and accreditation requirements for the Planting Seeds education program, the Ministry of Education re-certified Planting Seeds for three years as a program that meets the standards of quality education in Guatemala on the 7th of December.

Planting Seeds was among only 17 institutions that were certified by the Ministry of Education, which gives us great satisfaction that we can continue to provide quality education to populations in need throughout Guatemala.

Thanks to our incredible team for your dedication!

2017 Preschool Graduation at Sacala Los Lomas

This year’s four Graduates carried in the Guatemalan Flag. The class received their certificates and individual family photos. Some former grads were recognized and applauded for continuing their education. Many others have finished high school and moved on with their lives. Parents and grandparents came to see the festivities and join the celebration. There was clapping, cheering, and lots of firecrackers. Everyone was treated to a marvelous hot lunch provided by the Mothers Group.

A beautiful celebration in one of our remote highlands schools. So many proud smiles.

A special thank you to Norma, our new teacher at the Sacala School.
