Helping children

“Before the children were only making it to fourth grade.  But now most are completing sixth grade, thanks to Mil Milagros.” – mother
 

Since 2010, 96% of the sixth graders in Mil Milagros’ partner schools have graduated, compared to the national average of just 66%. In rural indigenous communities, like those where Mil Milagros works, the graduation rate is estimated to be 40%.

Fifty percent of children in Guatemala suffer from chronic malnutrition, the fourth highest rate in the world. In the communities where Mil Milagros works, the rates exceed 70%. Since 2012, there has been a 50% reduction in child malnutrition (and stunting) in Mil Milagros’ partner communities.
