Sponsoring a school child is one of the most fulfilling ways you can contribute to the lives of Honduran children. You will be helping to improve their life chances!
Tegucigalpa Market Children Program
Your donation will be used to provide uniforms, school supplies, and data packs for phones to access on-line classes. AyO staff stay connected to the students and their families. They monitor grades and provide encouragement and tutoring to keep students in school. You can read more about this program here.
If you have sponsored before, we will always assign the same student to you as long as they are still in the program. Donations in any amount are welcome. We can combine your donation with others to sponsor students.
Rates to sponsor individual students for the 2024 school year are:
Primary Students $230 per year
Secondary Students – Grades 7 – 11 $360 per year
Grade 12 Graduating Students $415 per year
Vocational Students $415 per year
University Students $475 per year
Please consider topping up your donation to help with tutoring and health care costs. When donating on-line, calculate the total of your donation, including sponsorships. There is a place on the form to provide any special instructions such as; what to do if your student is no longer in the program; add/change whom the child is dedicated to; and any other special instructions.
Other Ways to Donate
Donations can be made via cheque or e-transfer. You can request a donation form by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
All sponsors will receive a receipt for tax purposes. Later in the school year you will receive a certificate of sponsorship.
Santa Barbara Scholarships
The scholarship program in Santa Barbara is run separately from the one in Tegucigalpa. You can read about it here. The rate to sponsor a Secondary Student in Santa Barbara is $375; a university student is $500.
