Each year the teachers choose children for the Sponsor-A-Child program based on need. These are the children who are the most disadvantaged, and might feel left out because their parents cannot afford any extra educational needs - tutoring, glasses, dental care. Your contribution of $200 per year will help make a student's life a little easier - providing medical care if needed, basic education and school supplies, a hot lunch every day. Your sponsored child will receive a yearly medical and eye examination with follow-up as needed: vitamins, de-worming and lice treament medication, a yearly dental exam and toothbrush.
If you or your group or organization would like to sponsor a child, we will send a photo and a brief description of his/her family situation. The teachers have asked us to stress that your money goes to the school directly, not to the parents or the child. This ensures that the money is spent strictly on the children's educational needs and is not used for any other purpose.
100% of all donations and sponsorship fees go directly to La Escuelita.
