This school was donated to the government by the Foundation to operate, but to improve the quality of education we pay the wage of one of the 3 teachers and help with the nutritional supplement the children receive each mid-morning. This is usually around $240/month for the 60 students.
We also need help from time to time for emergency needs, but
THE SPECIAL NEED IS A SCHOLARSHIP FUND TO HELP GRADUATES FROM THE 6th GRADE BE ABLE TO CONTINUE THEIR EDUCATION IN PATZICIA--5 miles distant. They will need help with daily transporation, educational materials, and the required uniform for the government Junior High. A donation of $15/month would take care of each student. It's too late to begin this year, but we would like to begin forming a fund to help those who graduate from 6th grade in October.
