Petén Scholars Need Your Help

Our hearts are full as we celebrate graduations with some of the students in our Petén Scholars Scholarship Program.  We are receiving more requests for scholarships for education this year than ever before! As you may remember, we sent a request for help with our scholarship program last month. But with so many requests coming our way we are revising that budget. We would love for you to prayerfully consider giving to our Petén Scholars Program. The 2022 school year will begin in January and we just want to let you know how YOU can be a tremendous blessing to some great kids here.

As we plan our budget and field requests for help with education, we are counting on you:

  • We need your help to provide backpacks, school supplies and books for the primary grades.
  • We need your help to fund the education for Secondary grade students including tuition, books and uniforms.
  • We need your help to scholarship students in vocational training such as accounting, education, engineering, mechanics, nursing, etc.

Our budget for 2022 Petén Scholars Scholarship Program is $7,000. This will cover:

  • Two University students who wish to study nursing which averages $1,200 per year, per student.
  • Our secondary and vocational scholarship program which averages $425 per year, per student.
  • Primary school supplies in our sponsored village, grades pre-school through 6 is approximately $400.
  • Backpacks for approximately 50 students, $500.

An education gives these kids a chance for a brighter future. We would love for you to be a part of this wonderful project. Please let us know if you would like to help support education in Guatemala.
