Mundo Posible

World Possible in Guatemala

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.

Our Mission

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.
