BIENVENIDO A MUNDO POSIBLE
Mundo Posible is the Guatemalan registered chapter of World Possible. We have been working since 2014 to bring RACHEL to remote areas where there are very few options available for accessing educational content and information. Besides bringing this resource to rural communities we have developed training guides and materials and have trained thousands of teachers on how to use this tool in their classrooms.
Our mission is to contribute to the improvement of the quality of education and reduction of poverty by facilitating technology tools to schools and rural communities involving local talent and skills.
MEET RACHEL GUATEMALA
RACHEL Guatemala has over 20 modules in Spanish including Wikipedia, Khan Academy, and these collections gathered by Mundo Posible Guatemala specifically for schools in Guatemala.

Country Director of Mundo Posible since its inception in 2014, Israel is Maya Tz'utujil of Lake Atitlán in Guatemala. He has been a teacher in elementary school and a computer instructor, and first used RACHEL when we worked for the Riecken Libraries network. He has promoted the use of technology in the classroom with teachers from more than 140 rural schools in the country, transforming the use of computer labs into places of research and learning. Because of his efforts in strengthening Mayan languages, he was selected as one of the 10 Facebook Stories in 2014 .
