About Us


It all started because of a desire to help mothers in Guatemala earn an income so they could educate their children and support their families.  Education And More was founded!

Education And More is a Christian charitable organization with one mission-- to help disadvantaged families in Guatemala.

 Our Education and Sponsorship Programs helps students so they may start their schooling or return to school to finish their education. Students of all ages - children through adult - are welcomGuatemalan Children  in Vacation Bible Schooled into the program to advance their education from first grade through their university studies.

The Fair Line....... by Education And More is our Fair Trade program. We are an ethical shopping source for you -- a member of the Fair Trade Federation, and we assist disadvantaged artisans in earning a fa
ir income for their work. However, in addition to a fair income they receive many more benefits for their families such as education for their children, repairs to improve their homes and lives, new sewing centers for added skills and income, grants, micro-credit loans, Vacation Bible School and much more.

Since 2007 we have been helping families.  A few of our milestones include:
