Letters of Gratitude, from Guatemala

Compassionate Eye Foundation (CEF) periodically receives thank-you letters by students and parents from Mayan-Mam communities in Guatemala, supported through its educational projects and programs. We are happy to share the following translated letters (from Guatemala); one by a student, and another by a parent, describing the educational opportunities CEF has helped bring about within their community. One community at a time, with your support, CEF is making a difference in the lives of many.

handwritten letter by a student

From a student, from third year Basico

"Through this letter, I send you my best wishes for success in your everyday tasks. I like to study and to learn a lot of things. We take physical education courses and I attend the technical operator course in computers at Comitancillo where I have learned to use Word, Excel and Power Point Programs. This year, I hope to complete all my subjects satisfactorily and, for the following year, I hope to follow a career. I remain grateful for your support."

From a parent

"I am very happy because my children attend classes every day from Monday to Friday. We are very pleased with the program Pre Primera since our children have the opportunity to study. My children leave the house at 7:00 in the morning to attend classes at 8:00 a.m. and they return home at 2:00 p.m. Even though they must walk two hours a day, this is not important. The most important is that they learn new things. Thanks to all the donors."
