The scholarships program has been running for around 3 years. Thanks to the support of altruistic friends and guests from the Zuleta luxury boutique hotel, a group of children from the local community can count on economic support for their education. We’ve been able to support the family economy of around 40 students, some from the primary school and some from the college, helping them with books, uniforms, school fees and materials for the whole year.
Scholarships can be surprisingly affordable. $350 a year can provide a child with the education they need for a great start in life, and even a small donation goes a long way here in rural Ecuador.
We hope to increase the number of scholarships to at least cover the basic educational necessities for children from the poorest families. If you would like to sponsor a scholarship or part scholarship for a local student, please contact us.
