VOLCANO 4 GOOD
Volcano4Good is a new philanthropy initiative that was born thanks to the Volcano Innovation Summit. This initiative will allow us to make a real difference in the future of Guatemalans.
We want to achieve foreign and local sustainable donations at scale to channel them to the core obstacles that are limiting the growth and development of our human talent. Our 4 main axes of focus are: Education, Malnutrition, Natural Resources and Mobility.
Our first big alliance will be in our Education area with Funsepa's Digital Villages program.
In the picturesque region of Sacatepéquez, Guatemala, lies a charming village named San Bartolomé Milpas Altas. Despite its beauty, the village faces significant challenges, particularly in its education system. There are about 1,000 children attending public school in this area. Funsepa is working to equip them with the proper tools, so all these students can achieve their full potential. They all deserve an education worthy of the 21st century, an education powered by technology!
Join our Volcano4Good campaign and help us transform San Bartolomé Milpas Altas into a digital village. This means that all of the public schools will have access to technology and unlock a new world of learning and opportunities for these students.
Join us today, let's connect a village and change the future of these children!
