Mundo Posible is the Guatemalan registered chapter of World Possible. We
have been working since 2014 to bring RACHEL to remote areas where there are
very few options available for accessing educational content and information.
Besides bringing this resource to rural communities we have developed training
guides and materials and have trained thousands of teachers on how to use this
tool in their classrooms.
To contribute to the improvement of the quality of education and reduction of
poverty by facilitating technology tools to schools and rural communities
involving local talent and skills.
