Summary

In Belize a free education isn't always an option. At Ambergris Caye Elementary School, we are trying to provide options for children whose parents cannot afford to send them to school. Through this project your donation will go directly towards a child's education, paying their tuition to one of the best schools in Belize! Please search your heart and educate a child. Consider a monthly donation on a recurring basis to help a child. It's easy to set up! Be generous, children are the future!

Challenge

Often we take for granted a free education. However, children in Belize are often not able to attend school because of lack of space in a government school, or there is no government school in their town or village, or the parents cannot afford to send the children to school. This creates situations where children start school late and miss the very formative years of education. Children are sometimes eight to ten years old and still cannot read due to the lack of opportunity.

Solution

With this project Ambergris Caye Elementary school will take your donation and apply it directly toward the tuition of a child who falls into the above category. These sponsored children will be selected by the administration based on financial need and academic promise. There is always another child or children we are made aware of who are unable to attend solely due to the parents inability to pay. Through your donations we can make this problem go away for the children of San Pedro.

Long-Term Impact

This project will be a long term project to address this social issue within the community of San Pedro, Belize. Through education of children from an early age we will help eliminate poverty within the community. By ensuring that those from the poorer socio-ecconomic facets of the community are educated, we are helping to aid them in being able to provide their children with the education which was so difficult for them to attain. We are appealing to you to help support this project.
