Summary

With your support, we will help 16 young Chileans, aged between 15 and 16, through "back to school" programs. Our study program will help them to catch up on their studies in 3-4 years via an innovative educational model. They have been out of the school system because they are from very poor neighborhoods and go out to work at an early age. Your donation will assure them a comprehensive help: meals; clothing; hands on workshops; and continuity in their studies, thus, making up for lost time.

Challenge

Currently, there are almost 222.000 children and young people (aged between 6 and 21 years old) who are excluded from the school system in Chile. The majority of them were born and grew up in families living in extreme poverty. Due to work, drug use, and domestic violence these young people have been out of the educational system - let's recover the lost time.

Solution

Let's give these young people the chance to complete their education. We will support them by providing the comprehensive care essential for their human and educational development. Your help will allow them to continue their studies at "Betania" school, a school that has a multidisciplinary team where the work is personalized, assuring quality education. Through hands-on workshops - cookery, music, and personal care and presentation - they will also be taught how to make a living.

Long-Term Impact

These young people will build harmonious relationships with their classmates, form bonds through friendship, and develop self-confidence. The majority of them will continue their studies once they graduate, as we accompany the graduate for at least two years after having graduated and we also offer scholarships for further education. 55% of these young people continue their studies and become the first generation in their families to go on to further education and lifting them out of poverty
