DENVER November 18, 2020 -- WorldRemit, a leading international payments company, is giving away 100 tablet computers to students in Guatemala! Under the new hybrid education system, students will be allowed to study from home to reduce potential exposure to COVID-19. WorldRemit, which has a large payout network in Guatemala, wants to create opportunities by widening access to education with this generous offer.

Customers in the USA will have the chance to win a tablet for their chosen recipient in Guatemala by simply making a transfer of at least $100 to Guatemala using the WorldRemit app or website between 18 November and 31st December 2020 and making sure they have registered for the offer online at: WorldRemit will randomly select winners at the end of each month. A tablet will then be sent to the winners’ chosen recipient in Guatemala.

“As a company, we recognise the transformative impact of education in young peoples’ lives, and we know that funding education is one of the main reasons that Overseas Foreign Workers send money back home. We want to ensure that more students can access learning resources online, whilst supporting those who opt for distance learning for personal reasons. This offer is our way of helping our customers to support their family and friends while playing our part in trying to mitigate inequalities around access to education,” said Jorge Godinez, Head of Latam at WorldRemit.

The education system in Guatemala has suffered huge disruption as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Ministry of Education has therefore announced that studies will take place through a “Hybrid” or “Mixed” model of educational delivery that combines learning in the classroom and at home. The prospect of remote learning has caused concern for a number of low-income households who may struggle to afford the additional resources required, such as tablet.

Jorge Godinez, Head of Latam, WorldRemit added, “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on many families and their finances. This unfortunately means that a number of parents will have to make the difficult choice between choosing whether to buy household provisions or equipment so that their children can continue their studies remotely. As a Guatemalan, I know this competition will have a positive impact on the winners and their households.”

WorldRemit is giving customers the chance to start Christmas celebrations early! To enter, simply opt-in via the link below after making a transfer to Guatemala between 18th November and 31st December 2020. Terms and Conditions apply
