Become a Student Sponsor

Met Rene Jouvensky with 4th grade students at the educational farm.

As you may know from experience, running a school is no easy task! We strive to do our best and improve year after year. To date, we have received $0.00 government funding from any country to help cover the costs of running our two pre-school/elementary schools. We strongly believe that a nurturing elementary education for all children will change the island of Hispaniola and the world. We partner with individuals and groups who decide to use their privilege to give this opportunity to those who are denied it otherwise. Will you join us?

Level 1 – an annual donation of $150 which covers daily lunch, a uniform shirt, and some materials. At this level, your sponsored student could be paired with more than one sponsor.

Level 2 – a monthly donation of $30 which covers daily lunch, a uniform shirt, some materials, and contribution to teacher’s salary.

Level 3 – a monthly donation of $50 which covers daily lunch, a uniform shirt, some materials, contribution to teacher’s salary, and a contribution to the facilities and educational farm field trips.

All sponsors receive information on their students and work samples, as well as monthly general updates about the schools and organization. Level 3 sponsors have access to director Caitlin McHale Floreal’s personal blog.

If you have any questions about coming on board as a student sponsor, please email Sponsor@EsperanzaMeansHope.org. We have different payment options available.

So far for the 2021-2022 school year, which starts September 6th, we have 63 of our 250 students sponsored. Here is the breakdown:

-33 students sponsored at level 1 ($150/year),

-12 students sponsored at level 2 ($30/month),

-18 students sponsored at leevl 3 ($50/month). Thank you!

FUN FACT: In the United States public school system, the cost of sending one student to school each year is over $12,000. Read more…
