Amazon Pueblo Sponsor a Student Program

Sometimes a student of the community school of La Libertad may strongly desire to attend school, but is not able to do so. While students do not pay to attend public school, they must supply their own uniforms, shoes, 12 notebooks, pens, pencils, art supplies, and other small school-related expenses during the year. Their families are not able to meet these expenses.




The Amazon Pueblo Sponsor a Student Program helps these students to attend school. For $100/year these expenses may be met. The funds are collected through Amazon Pueblo’s PayPal account, with a donor-generated PayPal message indicating that the funds are to be directed to the Sponsor a Student Program. The Amazon Pueblo project will use the funds to directly buy and give the materials to the student. The teachers will monitor the attendance and progress of the student. A bi-yearly update of the student’s progress, with pictures, will be emailed to the student’s sponsor.


As an added benefit, all students who attend school in the village of La Libertad are provided (by the local government) with a free school lunch.


Would you like to sponsor a student?  If so, please SEND ME AN EMAIL.  Mil gracias!

We are currently developing this program.  We hope to soon have the teacher-generated student profiles from which our sponsors make choose a student.  Below is an example of program application in English.
