Reading Village empowers youth to break the cycle of generational poverty. Combining education, leadership, and literacy, the organization empowers indigenous Guatemala youth to ensure the generation behind them is literate and capable of critical and creative thinking skills necessary to succeed in school and in life. In one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere, Reading Village develops local leadership so that communities can flourish under their own resources and creativity.

From designing communications strategies to managing individual campaigns, we have provided Reading Village with both material and strategic support to leverage their unique story for incredible organizational growth. We have traveled with the organization to Guatemala to document their impact in rural, indigenous communities. Over the course of each field visit we interview youth, collect stories, and photograph their programs to produce a collection of visual assets that we then leverage across their fundraising and communication content.
