Building a brighter future for children and young adults
New Dawn Guatemala has made a commitment to fully fund the education of 30 youth and young adults from Nuevo Amanecer and the surrounding area each year. Since 2013, the organization has provided over $14,000 in tuition assistance for youth who otherwise would have little alternative to low wage, back-breaking work in the coffee and banana fields.
In November of 2015, New Dawn funded four youth (two male and two females) to participate in a fundraising course offered by Guatemalan-based non-profit Entre Mundos. The six-day course provided classes in fundraising, economic development publicity, and capacity building, giving these individuals skills that are critical for generating methods for directly supporting their communities.
$222 will send a child to school for a YEAR!
These scholarships are only possible because of your generous support. Please help us continue to fund these remarkable students!
