The environment of living paycheck to paycheck is one where there is no disposable income for children to further their education.  By investing in one life we can see families better their lives, which in turn creates more opportunities for the whole community.  We cover 100% of the students tuition, supplies, and transportation to/from school.  During this time their families lose a main contributor to the home, but this short term sacrifice can dramatically change their long term situation.  Our students must go through a selection process that involves a financial needs assessment, student/parent agreement, references, mentorship with a pastor, and a service requirement in which they give back to their community. 

Here are a few organizations we are working with to make this happen:  The Guatemalan Project, All for Him Christian Ministries, and El Triunfo Assembly of God.
