The Glen Rock Poverty Project is asking residents to sell cards to help build a school in rural Guatemala so children without financial resources can obtain an education. “We are working hard to build a school in Santa Maria de Jesus, a poor village outside of Antiqua, Guatemala,” said Poverty Project Founder Beth Fernandez. “The school will be for the poorest of the poor, who can’t afford the registration and supply fees that can equal up to $250 American. For a farming family that makes $1 or $2 a day, education is impossible. We’re going to change that. “This holiday season, buy or sell our gift cards for $5. They include a handmade worry doll pin from Guatemala. One hundred percent of the money from the cards goes to From Houses to Homes, the New Jersey-based organization that is building the school. If you would like to some cards to sell, or purchase for your holiday gifts, please contact me at” In recent years, the Glen Rock Poverty Project has helped to construct a house with Habitat for Humanity in Paterson, bought well pumps for villagers in sub-Saharan Africa, and provided mosquito nets to reduce the incidence of malaria in Haiti. The Habitat for Humanity project in particular brought out students from Glen Rock High School, the Hamilton School, Academy of Our Lady in North Haledon, and from Ridgewood High School to work on the construction of sections to be included in the house.
