San Pedro Yepocapa

Planting Seeds is partnering with other institutions to establish high quality educational programs. Since 2015, Planting Seeds has worked with “El Jardín Gian Carlo Noris” in San Pedro Yepocapa, which belongs to the REKKO Organization of Italian founders and benefits 50 children between 4 and 6 years of age.

Planting Seeds’ partnership centers around continual support, supervision of programs, and ensuring Rekko has the training and resources needed to meet the educational needs of their population.

REKKO’s popularity and high performance is a hot topic in Yepocapa. In February of this year an evaluation was carried out in public and private establishments in order to compare the math and literacy levels between these schools and the students of the “El Jardín Gian Carlo Noris.”

The results showed that Rekko’s children are better prepared than the public and private sector students in this region. This early childhood center has now been registered with the Ministry of Education of Guatemala.
