In Guatemala, many young indigenous children do not speak Spanish and do not have access to preschool. They are not prepared to enter elementary school at age 7, which leads to high first grade dropout rates. Let's Be Ready is an innovative program working to change that! Let's Be Ready hires and trains local licensed teachers to deliver quality preschool programs where there are none, or where preschools are extremely overcrowded. They work closely with local administration and parents to develop the program, and count on the community to provide a classroom or other space to hold classes. For $1,500 you can sponsor a Let's Be Ready preschool room for the entire academic year.
