You are making a tremendous impact in the lives of Nicolás Christian School students!

Students and Graduates are becoming entrepreneurs, and some are independently securing their grants and microloans to pursue different types of farming enterprises. Our July 2022 team saw more than six greenhouses producing the most beautiful Roma tomatoes. Nicolás Christian School graduate Antonio is working in the greenhouses. Their first harvest was 100 lbs. of tomatoes!

Some graduates, like Sucely Jenyfer, are successful business owners in Cotzal.

Sucely Jenyfer currently has a plan to go to baking school so that she can open a bakery…in addition to her successful clothing shop in Cotzal!

Nicolás Christian School students have options

Other students who don’t have a desire to attend university in the future have a new option to transfer to an Intecap trade school after 9th grade. Nicolás Christian School currently has ten scholarships to offer that cover tuition at the Huehuetenango campus. Intecap trade schools have an excellent job
placement rate after graduation.

Our graduates have hope for a better future because of the education you are providing for them. Hope for a better future is key in this part of Guatemala, recognized as the #1 area for youth suicide in the country.

To fully fund the 2023 academic year for 150 students, Nicolás Fund for Education must raise
$174,000 by 12.31.22. This would require 58 donors to donate $3000 before 12.31.22.

We also have a new option for donors to make a total pledge towards the 2023 academic school year that can be paid in installments as long as the last installment payment is received by 12.31.22. For more information, call Becci Merritt at 425.243.3709.

Make a donation today and help us bring all 150 students back in January 2023!
