Follow the IvyWise Team as We Travel to Build a School in Guatemala
On Sunday seven members of the IvyWise team will travel to Guatemala to build a school as part of IvyWise Gives Back initiative with School the World! Here’s how you can follow along with our journey.
At IvyWise we believe that educational support is important at any age and that making a positive impact, on your local community and in the world, is essential to building a better future for children everywhere. It is in that spirit that we decided to partner with School the World as part of our IvyWise Gives Back initiative and work with them to bring education to children who need it the most.
This weekend a select group of IvyWise team members will travel to Guatemala to help build a new elementary school for kids in need! Our goal was to raise enough funds, in conjunction with the group we are traveling with, to not only help build the school but also provide the resources to get the school started and keep it running long after we are gone.
Now, the work begins! We’re excited to get our hands dirty and make an impact in this community!
Impact is a major goal that we emphasize to students who take on similar projects as part of their high school experience. Donating your time is great, but making a positive impact that continues to grow long after you have returned home is essential to creating lasting change. This is why School the World is so special to us. School the World doesn’t just build schools. They develop deep relationships with the local government and community in order to ensure the success and longevity of the school once it’s completed. They provide teacher and parent training, as well as other support on an ongoing basis for years after the initial build. This is the kind of impact that we value and want to support through our partnership!
Be sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for updates on our progress! You can also follow the #EnviFlyWiseSTW hashtag to see posts from our entire group, including our other corporate partners Envisage International and Flywire!
