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 them to remain undeterred in their quest for learning, it also provides them with additional learning opportunities through extra-curricular field trips, classes and opportunities. These students have strict requirements for their participation and act as mentors to other students.
There are currently 60 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.
There are currently 98 children, represented by 44 families receiving social assistance from entreamigos.
entreAmigos is committed to helping every child through school. Children involved in the Scholarship program are held accountable for attending school regularly and getting good grades. Kids with troubles have access to all services and individual help to develop the skills necessary to succeed. Sponsors of students will receive updates about their sponsored child and will be invited to attend Scholarship family events.
The entreAmigos Scholarship program began with one child in 2006. Today we have 60 children receiving full scholarships and nearly 100 in the Social Assistance program. Donor support is critical to this program
