CANFRO will provide the uniforms, books, shoes, supplies, fees and medical care required for children/youth to attend school. CANFRO will work directly with El Centro de Esperanza Infantil A.C./The Centre of Hope for Children, located at Crespo 308, to implement this project.
Students will gain the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in a broader, more lucrative job market. When one or two members of a family increase their earning power, the whole family benefits. Moreover, children and youth who attend school have the increased academic and social literacy they need to be more knowledgeable and involved citizens of their communities. In addition, they act as role models and mentors to their own and neighbouring family members. Read more about School Sponsorship Project Success Stories.
Canadian sponsors can provide annual support for many years – until their students finish as much schooling as they wish to pursue. Sponsors visiting Oaxaca can meet their students and even visit their families at home.
