Meet Santiago, our new scholarship student who comes from a village outside of Solola. This is his first session with tutor Antonio. He will come on Fridays to do his tutoring and volunteer work. His mother is with one of the weaving groups we work with called Las Estrellas. She has never been to school so she signs the paperwork with her thumb print. Santiago is now in middle school and his mother very much wants him to graduate high school.
We have all of our students for this year but if you would like to sponsor a scholar for 2019, let us know and we will start looking for that special student for you. School runs from January - October, 2019. Scholarships are $200 for elementary, $300 for middle school and $500 for high school.
A scholarship provides: A year of tuition, school supplies, and an opportunity for these students to pursue their goals.
