Cantel Bursaries

On October 28th volunteer Keith Walker returned from one week in Guatemala where he was wrapping up a six year project which has raised almost $50,000 for tuition, uniforms, books, equipment and, in one case, room and board which has made possible the graduation and professional qualification of five young Mayan students.

He was also invited to the graduation of the last and youngest student, Mildred, who requested that he “stand in” for her father who died in 2009 of untreated diabetes. The graduation was followed by a wonderful lunch and party at the home of her mother Amalia.

None of the five students would have been able to continue in school beyond grade six without the assistance of the Cantel Scholarships and the Guatemala Stove Project.
