Scholarship students

Our scholarship program allows students to continue beyond Grade 6, and to finish High School.  For many families, the additional costs associated with Jr and Sr. High are prohibitive.  These costs include school uniforms, school supplies, and transportation into Panajachel for High School students.  In exchange, the "Becados"  must keep up their grades, and volunteer at the Centre.  These boys dug a compost pit one Saturday, and the girls were cleaning, organizing the office, and making new posters.  On Saturdays, they also mentor younger students who are struggling with their school work.  These hardworking students are the future for San Antonio Palopo.
