Our child Juana Roxana Aguilar Gomez #GU9390471, stated in the last letter we received, dated May 2015, that she was not able to continue her studies due to lack of money. She states that she was to start her first year of middle school and it costs about Q1500.00. I looked up the equivalent U.S. Dollars and I believe it is around $200.00, is this correct? She states the money would cover tuition, paperwork, uniform and other things. How would we go about making this happen for her?

Is the $200 for the whole year?  And, does it have to be paid all at once?

I believe it is for the whole year but I have no answer for the time frame to be paid.

Phyllis, that is wonderful that your sponsored child was able to tell you all of these details! It sounds like approximately $194-200 USD would cover her schooling for a year. You are welcome to send a Family Gift and designate it for her schooling. To do so online, please log into your "My Account" and click the button for "Additional Giving." Use the drop-down menu for Family Gift to select the amount. While checking out for your gift, please click the link to add special instructions and type in the box that the gift is for school.

In Guatemala, school starts in January and ends in Late Sept, early October, so they are nearing the home stretch for this school year. But you can make sure she is able to start the next school year.
