SED and TVE delegation in América Central

07/03/2018: Guatemala

From Feb. 4 – 17, Brothers Antonio Tejedor and Javier Salazar, representatives of SED, together with a delegation of four people from the Spanish television TVE that in charge of the “Pueblo de Dios” (People of God) programme, visited different works of the Marists in the América Central province, located in Guatemala and El Salvador.

TVE delegates Santiago Riesco, Sergio Rodríguez López, Antonio Usera and Julio Luquero, ventured into the Guatemalan towns of Santa Polonia, Chichicastenango (where the municipality of the K'iché Technological Institute (ITECK) is located), Panimaché Quinto Alto and Cobán to learn about the work of the Marists in the area.
These include the projects in which SED collaborates: the construction of a school and a clinic in Cobán (also one of the province’s solidarity campaigns), the home of orphaned children of Santa Polonia, among others.

During their stay in El Salvador, they visited some of the 40 public centers that are part of the “Tejiendo Sueños” (weaving dreams) project, an initiative of the Marists that aims to improve the educational quality of poorer schools and those in the country’s periphery.

“Tejiendo Sueños” is responsible for developing formation for the talent of teachers, schools of family education and coexistence with young people.

After several days of filming, the Brothers and the delegates of TVE highlighted that the Marist work continues to grow and is not only educating and evangelising young people and children, but also strengthening educational tools and promoting spaces to improve their social environment.
