The Maya village Xetonox's elementary school serves over 220 children from seven to fourteen. Like in most Guatemala rural area schools, they have to deal with a higher demand than what they can cope with, and they are always in need of school supplies. Four Directions' clients are encouraged to bring school supplies, either by packing them from home or buy stopping with their guide at a store on the way there. Everything is received with gratitude.
