Waves of Hope Scholarship Program

Summary

In December 2016, we were proud to see the first graduating class at the Waves of Hope High School and decided to begin a scholarship fund to help make post secondary education attainable for those struggling to afford it. Each graduating student who is going on to university in Nicaragua is receiving a $40 / month scholarship that goes towards all the necessary expenses. We have committed 14 out of the 15 graduates from 2017, and are now raising money for the 2018 graduating class!

Challenge

Poverty has made education (particularly post secondary) unattainable for the children of many families in Nicaragua. These kids and their families will benefit from this scholarship fund by providing an opportunity to receive a proper education.

Solution

This scholarship fund helps with all the necessary education expenses that many families can't afford, and in turn gives these kids an opportunity to get a proper education and better chance for a prosperous future.

Long-Term Impact

Making education attainable for the children of poor families is helping to set a standard of placing a priority on the importance of education. This will impact future generations and hopefully help break the cycle of poverty that is so prevalent in these communities.
