Program Brief: USDA McGovern-Dole Educamos Program in Guatemala

Since 2010, Project Concern International, a Global Communities Partner (PCI) has implemented school feeding programs in Guatemala with funding from USDA’s McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition program. In 2016, PCI’s McGovern-Dole project, called EDUCAMOS, began its third phase of programming and continues to be implemented together with the Guatemalan Ministry of Education (MINEDUC) and PCI’s local literacy partner, Juárez & Associates. Over the life of the project, EDUCAMOS will provide 6,230 metric tons (MT) of USDA-donated commodities – CSB+, rice, beans, vegetable oil – for daily school meals, benefitting over 36,000 students from 294 schools in six municipalities in the department of Huehuetenango.
