Part of the Series : The Change Series
3-Year Streaming Price: $99.95



Playing soccer with the local kids, we realize that 9-year-old Julio’s family can’t afford to send him to the public school. Although the majority of the villagers speak their native language, Katchiquel, learning Guatemala’s national language, Spanish, is an important part of school. What effect would speaking only the local dialect have on someone’s ability to get a formal job, travel to a big city, or even visit a hospital? Our neighbor, Rosa, says that many girls quit school to take care of their younger siblings, but that education can be especially empowering for women.
