£500raised of £500 target by 12 supporters

    Weʼve raised £500 to Help pay for Jose Arturo (aka Chepe)'s last year of high school in Guatemala, studying a Bachillerato in Plastic Arts

    Quetzaltenango, Quetzaltenango Department, Guatemala
    Funded on Friday, 23rd December 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Chepe is one the youths that has grown up in the Hogar Abierto, supported by EDELAC and QT, over the last decade in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.

    He is now 18 and leaving at the end of the year, but has one more year to go to finish high school. Due to financial constraints, EDELAC is having trouble offering a full scholarship to him and other youths in the same situation. By helping to fund his final year of high school, we can not only help Chepe but allow more of EDELACs funds to help the other young adults leaving the Hogar but continuing education.

    The rough estimate we have is about 10000 Quetzales / £1000 / $1200 US, which would include his academic costs (yearly, semesterly and monthly payments to the college), materiel costs, graduation costs, uniform - the works!

    Working with a former volunteer from the Hogar, we have committed to raise this from our money and talking to friends, family and people who have been lucky (unlucky!?) enough to cross paths with Chepe. We are each trying to raise half the amount, but the more merrier.

    Detailed information can be provided on request - we're all about transparency!
