Support for Education
At Zeteli we are proud of our roots. We believe in local talent and recognize the need to create opportunities for children. That’s why the sale of each of our products represents an opportunity for a child in need to go to school.
How does it work?
For every purchase of a Zeteli accessory, a donation is made to the scholarship fund of a school located in San Pedro Ayampuc, a rural area of Guatemala. This donation is equivalent to one month of study for one child attending elementary school. Donations are made monthly.
Lack of education is one of the factors that most severely affects children in Guatemala. According to the National Survey of Maternal and Child Health (known in Spanish as the “Encuesta Nacional de Salud Materno Infantil” – ENSMI) during the 2014-2015 period, less than 20% of Guatemalan girls between the ages of 10 and 14 have completed elementary school. In the case of Guatemalan boys in that same age range, only 15.5% have done so. These data show the need to improve the educational situation of the country, since it affects economic development and social welfare in general.
It is true that it is not possible to solve the educational problems of a whole country without the involvement of the government, private entities and other organizations. However, the contribution of each of the accessories sold by Zeteli means taking another step on the path towards a better situation.
