Education- One of our largest initiatives is in the field of education. When our group began this partnership, only two elementary schools and no high schools existed in Los Palis. The high school students walked 5 miles and spent the night on the street in order to attend high school. After helping to build and support a high school, the village has also seen a growth in elementary schools to five. Currently, our group sponsors tuition for 62 out of 360 high school students and helps to provide a hot mid day meal for all of the students. For many, it is the only meal they eat for the day and provides the needed nourishment to continue their studies throughout the day.
Student sponsorship is $360.00 a year, while sponsoring one child's meal is $108.00 per year. The yearly tuition covers uniforms, books, and all materials needed.
