Karen Tharrington is a dedicated teacher and global citizen. If there is a need, she fills it. . . and she fills it in a way that is above and beyond what was expected. Karen’s teaching background includes high school Spanish, college Spanish, and Spanish teaching methods. But her teaching isn’t limited to the traditional classroom. Karen has also traveled the world to bring education to those without or with limited access.
In 2014, Karen traveled with 4 the World to Belize and Guatemala. While there, she spoke with girls about the difficulties they face in and out of school. The girls explained that some families do not send their girls to high school and asked for Karen’s help.
Now, you can help Karen help children in Guatemala go to high school. By contributing to the Karen Tharrington Scholarship Fund, you can help reduce the burden on families to send their children to high school. Today, it costs families 770 quetzals a year to send a child to high school. This is the equivalent of 100 US dollars.
For $400 you can send a child to high school to help ensure a better quality of life, not only for that child, but for that child’s future family. A person’s income is significantly related to a person’s level of education. In addition, the years of schooling a girl has completed predicts the amount of schooling her children will receive. Your contribution has exponential returns.
