San Pancho is a beautiful community in the midst of tremendous change. Although many families are doing much better than before, many families are living in a state of poverty that is incomprehensible. Reasons for the poverty are varied but the reality is that there are real lives of real children in San Pancho that could be dramatically changed for the better if given the opportunity of education.

Entreamigos looks to match Scholarship Donors with needy students in San Pancho. Due to overwhelming requests, scholarship assistance has been divided into two categories, under the following criteria:
These scholarships are for exceptional students with limited resources. Entreamigos education scholarships assist children to remain undeterred in their quest for learning, it also provides them with additional learning opportunities through extra-curricular field trips, classes and opportunities. The students who qualify for the program have strict requirements and standards. They must maintain a B average in school and attend scholarship meetings once a week. In addition their families must attend meetings and educational workshops and participate in community activities.
There are currently 80 children receiving Education Scholarships from Entreamigos.
The social assistance program provides support to students of very limited resources regardless of their academic ability. In some cases this assistance provides full support to children who come from distressed family situations which make it difficult to stay in school. In other cases food packs, clothes and basic needs assistance is provided. Parent absence, attendance problems, learning disabilities, malnutrition and abuse are common factors in our support assistance families. Entreamigos provides free tutoring, mentor programs and parenting workshops for these families.
entreamigos needs Scholarship Donors to be able to continue our scholarship program.
Full Scholarships provide uniforms, shoes, a backpack filled with school supplies, some school fee payments and extra fees. (Monthly fees, special events etc). Includes lunches during school hours if needed, priority in after school tutoring and computer use and dedicated attention to both child and family needs that could inhibit school attendance or performance.
Full Scholarships vary depending on the University, its distance from San Pancho and the situation of individual students. Most full scholarships provide University tuition, transportation costs, uniforms, shoes, a backpack filled with school supplies, books and school fees throughout the year. Due to the distance away of many Universities, scholarships may also include housing fees and food stipends.
