Impact and Outcome
The program differs significantly from that of other organizations in that instead of working to supply necessities for the present (food, clothing, medical care, etc.) GSSG takes a long-term view of how to assist Guatemalans in meeting their needs and bettering their lives. Success of the program is measured by the creation of a group of well-educated, altruistic leaders who dedicate themselves to working in Guatemala to improve the educational opportunities for all Guatemalans.
GSSG is growing and its impact can be seen in the villages and towns from which GSSG students have been recruited. The students share their new insights and knowledge with their communities. We are anticipating that over time significant transformations will occur as the GSSG students graduate from the universities and start putting their knowledge to work, one village at a time.
