Summary

Economic hurdles clearly obstruct access to quality education. Eliminating these hurdles is a precondition to level the playing field of socioeconomic development. It removes excuses for underdevelopment and creates opportunities to break traditional cycles of poverty. This scholarship program opens access to the Amun Shea Learning Program for 120 young people living in northern Morazan, the poorest region of El Salvador. This access will lead to a new era of dynamic change and growth.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The challenge is to overcome the disadvantage inherent in the lack of access to quality education, which traps people in a vicious cycle of poverty. The first step in creating a solution was to develop an appropriate but innovative learning program that hss materialized as Amun Shea. Six years of experience has shown very positive changes in attitude and capacity building. Tuition is well below national averages, but remains beyond the reach of local families. Economics is the crux.

How will this project solve this problem?

Partnering with parents who are convinced of the Amun Shea vision, through a scholarship program, will provide long-term program sustainability. The level of sacrifice made by parents to enroll and maintain their children in Amun Shea is no small feat and one that deserves a corresponding gesture of support. Matching parental responsibility with sponsorship will motivate other families to join in and will create a beneficial situation for all involved.

Potential Long Term Impact

Quality education focused on solving socioeconomic obstacles will continue to have a positive impact in the country. As students from the Amun Shea program begin to take responsibility for their communities, either in the private or public sector, their active presence in local decision making will create long-term change in community wellbeing. Local expertise and action will then balance outside intervention and programs, promoting efficient and sustainable use of resources.
