Thanks to all our supporters, we now have just over $6,000 for scholarships and bursaries for the children in Nicaragua. We know that this will make a very big difference to the lives of these children and to their families. The money raised will be enough to sustain the scholarship program for the first five years. Although we originally began with a target of $4,000, we surpassed this very quickly and decided that the project could use more funding. The funds donated above our first target level will allow the scholarship program to go longer. Scholarships will be awarded to children based on financial need and academic performance. We think that they will also help to underline the value of education and will provide recognition of the hard work and achievement of the children.
