We are hosting a Scholarship Drive for 2021! Covid-19 has affected families. Escuela Adelante gives away an average of $26.84 per month per scholarship student. With 56 scholarship students, we give away $18,036.48 each year. We have a project to fund tuition for all 56 children 12 months long. All year long, Global Giving is matching one-time 100% on all NEW recurring donations. We need new yearly recurring donors until we reach our goal of $18k! All one time donations are of course welcome!
Since the onset of the 2018 socio-political crisis, Nicaragua has suffered. Then, people lived in fear after protests turned violent. After, Nicaraguans were rebuilding when Covid-19 struck disaster. To add insult to injury, the region suffered two major hurricanes end of 2020. After such disasters, Escuela Adelante cannot sustain the rate of scholarship requests without donor support. We must continue to provide high-quality education. This year, this is a problem we can solve together.
We can support families during this difficult time of need by providing emergency relief to supplement their tuition at the school. Donors can provide a scholarship to help alleviate the financial pressure on the organization and the family. We can ensure that the school that the resources and tools available to provide high-quality bilingual education as well as serve nutritious food daily.
We support the disadvantaged to rise out of poverty through education. We make a big difference in the community. In Nicaragua hope goes far to propel a family to seek Escuela Adelante. The child attends so that they have greater potential in life. We especially support girls in education, special needs and make accommodations regardless of socioeconomic status. We look forward for you to be a part of this life changing opportunity for 56 (and hoping for more) scholarship students this year.
