Sponsor

Sponsors are vital partners in our mission to foster dignity and create opportunity through the power of education.  Sponsors provide support in two key ways: through a financial pledge to offset program costs and by offering encouragement, nurturing, and guidance to help our students succeed. A shared sponsorship invests $50 per month in their sponsored child or mother's education and a sole sponsorship covers the full cost at $200 per month. 

Child Sponsorship

Our students refer to their sponsors as padrinos, or godparents.  Ranging in age from 2 to 21, our students look to their sponsors as mentors and take comfort knowing that someone is invested in their well-being.  The Sponsorship Team organizes three program-wide communications to sponsors each year, and also helps students to respond individually to the letters they receive.  We encourage you to grow the relationship with your sponsor child by sharing a photo of your own family, sending cards to commemorate special occasions, or even visiting Guatemala to get to know him or her in person!

Safe Passage Partners

Safe Passage Partners offer ongoing support to help us offer a variety of programs day after day to families in the poorest areas of Guatemala City.  Partners choose the amount of their monthly, quarterly, or annually recurring gift (we suggest a $10/month minimum).  Safe Passage Partnership is a great option for individuals who wish to sustain our work for the benefit of all participants and are not seeking the one-to-one relationship facilitated by sponsorship.
