We are raising USD 2400 to fund 6 annual fellowships (400 each). These fellowships will help six kids that are on the verge of dropping out from school in a low-income neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
- Why do we do this?
We believe that education is essential for the personal growth of children and for the development of our country. It is only through education that children can expand their horizons, dream beyond the limits of their reality and acquire the skills to pursue those dreams. Education also provides children and young adults with the tools they need to understand the world around them, to agree with or question government decisions and to exercise their rights as citizens.
- Who would you be helping?
Students from low income families who attend the Nuestra Sra. de Fátima School in Villa Soldati, Buenos Aires, Argentina, who are in sixth or seventh grade of elementary school or the first two years of high school. Students are chosen because of their good performance in school and their likelihood of dropping out due to adverse financial or familiar circumstances.
