It is easy for one person to make a big impact
Sponsor a student and inspire them to pursue their dreams.
By sponsoring a student, you will help provide our students with a quality education and access to various support services. You will join a dedicated community of sponsors and supporters and receive letters from your child with photos, as well as regular EFTC updates and newsletters. You could become a friend and mentor to them as they work towards a brighter future for themselves and their families.
What does it mean to be a Sponsor?
As a sponsor, you are more than just someone supporting a child’s education – you are also a mentor and a friend. You are, similar to the Spanish word “padrino”, which means godfather or godmother. At EFTC, our sponsors are also Ambassadors for Education. We encourage communication between our sponsors and our students. You will receive a letter at least twice a year, with a current photo and an English translation, as well as regular updates from Education for the Children Foundation through newsletters and online updates.
Many of our sponsors develop a close relationship over the years with their sponsor child. We also encourage our sponsors to come and visit our school, take a tour, meet their sponsor child, and even visit their family!
We need sponsors!
We are always looking for more sponsors and supporters to join the EFTC family and play a part in changing the life of our students. With the help of our sponsors, and through education and empowerment, EFTC is working towards breaking the cycle of poverty in Jocotenango, Guatemala. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are ready to become a sponsor, or if you want to find out more.
Levels of Sponsorship
How can I help?
Becoming a sponsor is simple – yet your money can make such a difference to that one child. Our students are split into two groups: primary and middle school students, as well as our scholarship/ further education students.
Sponsor a Primary and Middle School Student
These are the students who attend the School of Hope, from Kindergarten to Middle School, so they’re part of our own educational program and benefit from the nutritional program as well.
SUPPORT A STUDENT’S NUTRITION FOR $20 A MONTH
With this option, you are providing for the two daily meals all of our students receive: morning refreshments and healthy lunches, along with fruit and vitamin-packed juices throughout the year. We ensure that we are providing each student with enough vitamins, protein, and carbohydrates to be ready and energized to learn every day!
SUPPORT A STUDENT’S EDUCATION FOR $45 A MONTH
This monthly donation will contribute to the cost of your student’s education. This includes all of their learning materials and everything they need to participate fully in the classroom.
SUPPORT A STUDENT’S NUTRITION AND EDUCATION FOR $65 A MONTH
A significant part of your student’s educational and nutritional needs will be covered by this level of sponsorship. This includes teaching, school books and other learning essentials, as well as food.
SPONSOR A FURTHER EDUCATION STUDENT
The cost of further education is much higher than primary or secondary, since they’re no longer part of the tuition-free School of Hope and also need more specific materials as they delve into their chosen careers. For this reason, we have different levels of sponsorship for our Scholarship (further education) students:
SUPPORT A SCHOLAR’S MATERIALS/UNIFORM FOR $25 A MONTH
With this option, you are paying for the books, calculators, and extra school materials your student needs throughout the year. You are also paying for the school uniform that is required once they leave our campus to pursue a more specific and advanced education.
SUPPORT A SCHOLAR’S TUITION FOR $50 A MONTH
This monthly payment will contribute to the cost of your student’s education. This is a combination of tuition and inscription fees, along with fees for any special events they need to attend whilst studying at another campus.
SUPPORT A SCHOLAR’S TUITION AND MATERIALS FOR $75 A MONTH
This level will contribute to your student’s tuition, materials, and uniform as they continue their education.
