Peace Schools Guatemala – Advanced Workshop for Teachers

by Lorena Escobar, AVP Guatemala National Coordinator

AVP Guatemala provided an Advanced Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) workshop through Peace Schools to a group of 16 teachers at the Dominican Sisters of the Rosary’s Nueva Vida (New Life) Mixed Educational Project. This project works with 296 children ages five to 12 years old in the 4th, 8th, and 9th zones in Guatemala City. Children are from low-income families whose parents make a living as street vendors selling tortillas or snacks.
