Scholarships in Itzapa - Guatemala

We have handed out our annual scholarships to 163 mothers for almost 400 children including almost 50 for secondary school in Itzapa. An opportunity these children simply wouldn't have if they weren't in our project. The money goes towards the national school inscription fee and maintenance, utensils and "extra" costs a parent is charged for educating their child in national school. A huge thank you volunteers past and present who made this possible with their contributions to our projects. Scholarships in Santa María will be handed out in February.
