Providing learning opportunities for indigenous women in Guatemala

Our project provides learning opportunities for the indigenous people of Guatemala, especially their women many of whom have been denied access to formal education. Our teaching staff is respectful of their Mayan languages, beliefs, and culture. As Guatemala enters the Globalization marketplace, its workers need to be able to communicate in English. International companies coming to Guatemala seek and hire English speaking employees. Our project believes in the hard working people of our country. The school plays an important role in the lives of its students. We are not only forming good student skills, but also good, employable citizens for Guatemala. The program provides daily training in English language development. The students have lessons in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English. These activities enhance the students’ vocabulary and speaking skills.

In some isolated rural areas of La Romana (Dominican Republic), we support the Haitian communities of the sugar plantations in the eastern part of the country. It is in those communities –where the population is likely to have limited or no access to outside resources– that Good Action Foundation provides support to needy farming families and vulnerable children.

Public education in the Dominican Republic is in critical condition. Haitian immigrant families, living in the sugarcane plantations of La Romana (Dominican Republic) are struggling to send their kids back to school because of their lack of school supplies, most those kids are girls. We want to provide every child in the area with a full backpack and several school supplies for quality education.

The situation in El Salvador is difficult, due to the reality of insecurity and violence, which has been increasingly worsen. This situation has consequences for the local population: displacement of families to other places by threats, migration, getting into debt, mental health problems.


In the poor area called La Chacra, most of the population is engaged day by day in the street sale and domestic work. Added to this reality are the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic that has led families to greater poverty, along with the recent tropical storms Amanda and Cristobal who have hit the entire national territory and several families have lost their homes and all their belongings.

Good Action Foundation has helped in the face of this emergency providing the immediate needs: food baskets, clothing, mats, face masks, some medicines, personal hygiene, and cleaning supplies to disinfect the houses.

2) Distribution of non-surgical masks.
3) COVID-19 awareness sessions.
4) School support in rural areas.
