Because of the lack of money, 40% of all high school aged students drop out of school. The girls start learning how to be a good mother and the boys normally go to work in the citrus fields. The cost for tuition and books is $400 USD per year. We can keep a young person in school. The scholarships will be given through our churches. We will have an application form to fill out and the most deserving will be able to go on to school with your support. This is a new program. We have already sponsored four students.
