Midyear Point Marks Progress in our Scholarships Project

The halfway point in the school year means a lot is happening with our Primary Education Scholarships project!

Last week Pueblo a Pueblo distributed school supplies to 105 student scholars. Although we have always provided school supplies in the beginning of the year, we recently started restocking necessary items at the midyear point and saw great success. This small contribution, with materials like pens, pencils, and glue, is a big help to local families that often have to replace lost school supplies throughout the year. 

It’s also time to visit the doctor! Here in Santiago only about 50% of children are fortunate enough to have regular medical checkups. However, as part of our scholarships, students are provided with regular doctor appointments and any additional needed care. In the upcoming weeks, all 105 scholars will visit the doctor as a way to stay healthy and be prepared for school!

Finally, we are pleased to introduce, Andrea, the newest member to our project. Typically our scholarships are provided at the beginning of a new school year, but Andrea is an exception. Receiving her scholarship just this month, Andrea is now getting support while attending her first year of primary school. She lives with her mother, father, and two brothers and is currently learning how to read and write in class. Despite her young age, Andrea told us that she wants to be a doctor when she grows up. Our hope is that this scholarship motivates Andrea to stay in school and brings her one step closer to achieving her dreams in the future.
