Join The Guardians Student Leadership Team to Provide HOPE

Francis Bacon famously said "Knowledge is power", and education is one of the most powerful machines for breaking the cycle of poverty. Poverty is a growing issue in Rural Ecuador, South America. Public education in Ecuador is free for all children or so it would seem.

The Guardians Student Leadership Team (GSLT) at the Alliance Academy International discovered that required fees for things like transportation, materials and uniforms become the reason why many children cannot stay in school. So these high school student leaders decided to do something about this very important issue.

The GSLT decided to take action by creating a scholarship fund to cover these education fees and allow 12 students from a rural town in Ecuador to remain in school.

Their hope is that this education and this fund will empower these children to excel in education and life, beyond their years in school, which will make their community and country a better place.

To keep these 12 kids in school, and to potentially add more kids to the scholarship fund in years to come, the GSLT needs to raise $1000 this year.

As a team, the GSLT invites you to partner with them to reach this goal and continue transforming lives in Rural Ecuador.

Francis Bacon dijo: "El conocimiento es poder", y la educación es una de las máquinas más poderosas para romper el ciclo de la pobreza. La pobreza es un problema creciente en el Ecuador rural de América del Sur. La educación pública en Ecuador es gratuita para todos los niños, o eso parece.

El Equipo de Liderazgo Estudiantil de Guardianes (GSLT) de Alliance Academy International descubrió que los costos requeridos para cosas como transporte, materiales y uniformes se convierten en la razón por la cual muchos niños no pueden quedarse en la escuela.
Entonces, estos líderes estudiantiles de secundaria decidieron hacer algo sobre este tema tan importante.

El GSLT decidió tomar medidas mediante la creación de un fondo de becas para cubrir estos costos educativos y permitir que 12 estudiantes, de un pueblo rural en Ecuador, permanezcan en la escuela.

Su esperanza es que esta educación y este fondo capaciten a estos niños para sobresalir en educación y vida más allá de sus años en la escuela, haciendo de su comunidad y país un lugar mejor.

Para mantener a estos 12 niños en la escuela, y potencialmente agregar más niños al fondo de becas en los próximos años, el GSLT necesita recaudar $ 1000 este año.

Como equipo, el GSLT lo invita a asociarse con ellos para alcanzar este objetivo y continuar transformando vidas en las zonas rurales de Ecuador.
