In 2010, HoTPCA granted $500 to the We Improve Tomorrow (WIT) project which funds merit-based educational support to motivated, underprivileged and indigenous Guatemalan children who may otherwise not have access to an education. Joanne Crompton Clark, RPCV Guatemala, reports:
In 2010, with the support of HOTPCA, we assisted 85 students at three scholastic levels – 45 at elementary, 27 at secondary, and 13 at the vocational level. More students are pursuing knowledge at the secondary and vocational levels than previously (25 secondary and 6 vocational students in 2009).
