For the children of families living in the rural areas of El Salvador, the hope of achieving an education comes to an abrupt halt long before reaching high school. The costs associated with schooling are often beyond the means of families living on a bare subsistence income.
Our scholarship program supports high school and university students in Metapán and Ahuachapán who demonstrate the desire to achieve an education.
The students that you sponsor through Otra Fe are required to send us a letter each month, letting us know how they are doing in school, any marks they may have received, and issues they may be encountering. All funds donated are pooled and divided equally among the eligible students. Number of students is capped at 12.
Program Sponsorship Needed:
$80 (CAD) funds one student for one month.
""Hello friends of Otra Fe. I am sending you greetings from here at the university and I'm waiting for my patients. Have a good day!" ~Jacqueline, student of Dentistry
