Your generosity has an impact. Your generosity makes a difference in the lives of the children of El Salvador.
The impact comes from your gift being pooled with those of other donors, so that the Santa Luisa Elementary School in San Salvador, El Salvador, will have the needed funds to operate. The operating budget of Santa Luisa includes administrative salaries, school supplies, utilities, two meals a day for each child, medical/care/immunizations for each child, uniforms and textbooks.
The SCOPE Foundation assists by providing a financial gift to the Santa Luisa School each year, approximately $35,000 to cover operational expenses. This enables the school to stay financially solvent. The interest SCOPE earns on principal investments helps bridge this critical budget shortfall.
Sister Milagro seeks to collect $25 per student in tuition from their families. In reality, she often is only able to collect less than $14 per student per year. Many families cannot afford even this amount, and the nuns also do not turn down a family who wants to educate their children there.
The cost of helping to sponsor a student's education annually at the Santa Luisa School is $60 US dollars.
When compared to daily, monthly and yearly costs in the United States, the ability of supporters and friends of SCOPE to make a real and lasting difference in this world in the lives of these innocent and poor children is very real and attainable.
- If the cost of filling a tank of gas in the US were $2.50 a gallon, several refills would educate a student for one year.
- A monthly cable or cell phone bill could most likely educate two children at Santa Luisa for a year.
- A pair of shoes, a meal at a fancy restaurant in a major US city, concert tickets, or a professional ball game could educate three or more children.
- The cost of sending a college-aged student to a private school in the United States would provide enough revenue to educate the entire Santa Luisa school for one year.
Your contribution makes a difference and meaningful impact on the lives of the poor in our own hemisphere.
