The Ripple Effect Scholarship Fund works in partnership with the Rotary Club of Vista Hermosa in Guatemala to award scholarships for students from the rural community of Santo Domingo Xenacoj in Guatemala. The Rotary Club of Regina South is the lead funding partner and project manager for this program in Rotary International District 5550.
Each scholarship helps to offset out of pocket family expenses for school supplies, school fees, books, and shoes. High school students also incur additional costs for travel as there is no high school in Santo Domingo Xenacoj.
Without the scholarship a student would not have the opportunity to progress beyond grade six due to lack of financial resources and family pressure for students to work to help bring in extra income.
A Ripple Effect Scholarship will help to provide a child in Guatemala with access to quality education and a chance for a better future.
For a small investment of $125 a Rotary club, individual or a family can sponsor a scholarship for a student attending middle school or $500 for a student attending high school.
You can also choose to sponsor a scholarship as a Christmas Gift. We will send you a gift card which will include a seasonal greeting along with a photo and program information that you can give to someone as a gift. CLICK HERE for more information.
Individual donors will receive a charitable income tax receipt for their donation from the District 5550 WCS Foundation which is a registered Canadian charity.
