Farmer to Farmer currently supporting 23 students with scholarships in Guatemala. The students are in Primaria (grade school), Basico (middle school), Diversificado ( high school), and Universidad (university).
The amount we give is a big help to these students and their families. Our help can be the deciding factor as to whether a student can afford to go to school or not. Their education costs are steep as it is not just the cost of tuition, uniforms, and books, but the loss of a worker at home or in the fields. All the students work hard to get to school.
We are especially proud that we currently support 11 university students. It is especially costly to attend university. There is the transportation costs which may include a boat ride from Santiago Atitlan, and at least one bus ride to their place of study. Many students relocate to live with other family members that reside closer to larger towns and cities to attend college. This all adds to the difficulty and expense of continuing education.
Our scholarships are made possible by our members’ generous donations, and we thank you all for giving what you can. Remember that 100% of your donation to scholarships goes directly to the students. F2F is a 501(c)3, making your donations tax-deductible.
