Elena Macias Foundation
The Elena Macias Foundation is dedicated to helping the disadvantaged youth of Agua Verde, Mexico by providing basic necessities like running water and shoes and a chance to expand horizons with continued education. A huge part of what the Foundation does is match bright young students with a sponsor family in the US that will help the student continue with their academic endeavors.

In Mexico, no money means no school (they only go through 6th grade for free). The Foundation has established a scholarship program to ensure that economic standing doesn't impact a student's academic future. Every year we get more and more scholarship applications for well deserving students who need help and so I'd like to reach out to each of you as an opportunity for you to help.

To sponsor a student, we'll need a photo of you (or your better looking family) and a $225 sponsorship donation which pays for the following:

Tuition for the school year - Two (2) School Uniforms–Two (2) pairs of shoes for uniform (one pair given in August and one pair in February) - Two (2) pairs of tennis shoes (Jr High kids only) - A year's worth of school supplies which includes a back pack, calculator, notebooks, pens/pencils, math set and other misc. items) a second installment of notebooks, pens and pencils is given in February.

All students eligible for sponsorship must meet specific requirements for academic excellence and community service. A list of eligible students is provided (with a short description of family situation) for those of you wishing to select the student for yourself. In return for sponsorship donation, sponsors will receive a letter and photo from their student and the undying gratitude of a group of volunteers that do this charity out of the goodness of their hearts.


2013-2014 Academic Cycle
