The Sarapiquí Conservation Learning Center is greatly appreciative of all the support it receives from our various donors. It is through the help of the dorors that we can run the center effectively and smoothly. Without them, we could not provide Sarapiquí with the assistence they deserve and need.
We would like to give a special thanks to all the Scholarship donors who recently donated $325 for their student's 2010 school year. Due to the low income and relatively high living costs in Sarapiquí, many families find it extremely difficult to afford school supplies for their children. To learn more about the program or school in Costa Rica, please take a look at our ´Be a Scholarship Donor´ section of the website!
Our most directly benefited programs are the Scholarship and the ´Paquetes Escolares´ (Education Packet) campaign. For just $10 a child will receive 5 notebooks, 5 pencils, a gluestick, a ruler, scissors, a package of colored pencils and a toothbrush! With the great response from donors we were able to donate 200 packets to students last February for a fresh start to their school year. The smiles from the children's faces after receiving the packets are priceless. The campaign has been going year round and we are already gearing up for next yearss school supply extravaganza! Thank you participants!
