What's New: SewHope
November Trip Highlights
What's New: SewHope Cytotechnology
School and Lab
In mid-2024 SewHope, recognized by the Guatemalan Ministry of Health as a leader in Cervical Cancer Prevention in Guatemala, will open the SewHope Cytotechnology School and Lab.
The Guatemalan Ministry of Health (MOH) currently refers women with abnormal results to SewHope for secondary screenings and treatments. The lab, which will be equipped with the latest technology for cervical cancer screening and diagnosis, will have the capacity to review and provide quality control for all pap smears conducted throughout the MOH.
The school, which will be the only one in the northern half of Guatemala, will offer an accredited cytotechnology program to students from throughout Central America and will train cytologists on state-of-the-art microscopes, with classes taught by experts in the field from Central America and the United States.
Our Guatemalan nursing staff, physicians, and volunteers will screened over 5,000 women in 2023, and we plan to double that in 2024 and see 10,000 women.
Organizations such as ProPath, Hologic, and ProMedica, along with thousands of supporters, also believe in a world where everyone has access to healthcare. We are proud to partner with them as changemakers in Peten, Guatemala.
Together, we are building a brighter future for all. Join us on this journey, and be a part of lasting change.
SewHope's faith-based, certified Independent School opened its doors in January 2023. We also offer a half-day Reinforcement Program designed as a supplement to the public education system. We offer a full Guatemalan curriculum, use individualized online programs, direct instruction, small group work, hands-on activities and more to engage all types of learners.
Join this initiative and change a child's life! Beyond academic achievement, we value the development of each child's personhood. We envision students transformed by the love of God and equipped with the skills and tools needed to self-determine their futures.
