Argentina suffered during most of the 20th century from a recurring economic crises, persistent fiscal and current account deficits, high inflation, mounting external debt, and capital flight. Because of that, the poor families have less money to buy their everyday food, tools for the school, clothes, etc. This project guarantees the education of able teenagers in Cordoba (Argentina), who can not afford their studies by sponsoring these students to complete their high school education by way of a scholarship.
The project will provide scholarships to 18 High School students, to help them finish their High School period. Ten of them are taking the last year of the course in 2011, and the other eight students will finish their High School period in 2012. The scholarship will include all the tools the students need to be successful at school, and will also offer them different educational activities. Activities are: 1) Buy books, school supplies, school's uniforms, everyday clothes, transportation from home to the school, monthly groceries for all the students. 2) Search for volunteers for the English and computer lessons; for the academic help and the different workshops 3) Make a calendar with the Saturday's activities 4) Make a plan to control the performance of the students in the school (passing grades or failing grades). Visit each school when necessary. This scholarship is a yearly scholarship and it gets renewed every year as long as the students meet the minimum requirements of: school grades, family support and economic needs.
The main goal is to make education and all tools needed accessible to all 18 students, so they can finish High School/university successfully.
