Last evening I attended a fun event by La Catalina Foundation for students and sponsors to get together. These are students attending secondary, high school and college. There are more students needing scholarships than sponsors available.
Currently, there are 10 college students on scholarship, 8 of whom ar girls. That is amazing for La Manzanilla.
Please consider sponsoring a student or sharing the cost with someone. It is approximately $600USD a year for high school and around $1000 per year tuition at a university. Compare this to the cost of college tuition in Canada and the states. There are no dormitories, so students must pay for food and lodging also.
All the students were happy, friendly and honored to have most of their education paid for, when without scholarships would not be able to attend.
La Calalina office is located behind the kinder school.
