WIT provides families a way for their children to earn educational opportunities through academic performance.

Education is the key to prosperity in Guatemala where large families live on small subsistence farms. The average man works in agriculture and earns approximately $3.00 a day. School is out of reach for many children because the $50 annual school fee per child is too much for many families.

We believe that education is a foundation upon which communities can advance their societies by improving local health and promoting economic development. Education facilitates skill acquisition by increasing readiness to learn new techniques that are required to change one’s condition.
