Scholarships in Santa Maria

The recently constructed school in Santa Maria is now in use and has brought huge benefits for the students, community and volunteers. The new school is much larger than the previous building and as such is able to cater for the ever increasing number of children benefiting from this project.

In addition to funding construction work GVI Charitable Trust donations have been funding food programs, birthday celebrations, educational materials and also scholarships.

Over the coming month scholarships for primary education will be rewarded to over 200 children in the Indigenous community of Santa Maria De Jesus. As Project Director Dom Williams explains ‘By paying for materials and school fees for the children, the parents are able to send their children to school, when otherwise they would not have had the money to do so.’

Donations to this project help children to access this basic human right and earn an education. Many thanks to everyone who has supported the project and played an important part in this.
