SPONSOR A SCHOLARSHIP
In Nicaragua, school is only mandatory until age 11, meaning a high school education is a luxury many children can not afford. Most students end up stopping their schooling after the 6th grade due to lack of resources and funding. To help these children lead successful lives, Building New Hope provides scholarships for motivated students to attend high school and receive a quality education.
Join us today in helping these children achieve educational success!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How is the donated sponsorship money used?
In order to be used most effectively for the benefit of the students, the money donated from sponsors is pooled into one collective fund. This allows us to not only provide for your specific sponsored child, but to help all of the children as a whole, even those who may not have a sponsor.
What does each sponsored child receive?
Along with the cost of admission for school attendance, each sponsored child will also receive school supplies, a backpack, and a new pair of shoes. Students may also receive transportation or clothing depending on their grade level.
Can I check my sponsored student's progress in school?
As a sponsor, you will receive a yearly update indicating your student's participation and progress in school. These are provided only as progress updates to demonstrate the student’s continued participation in school. They are not intended for sponsors to assess their student’s weaknesses or areas in need of improvement. It is of utmost importance that these students are encouraged to continue achieving in their classes!
Can I send my student other types of gifts?
To protect the privacy of the children and their families, no contact is to be made with students except through Building New Hope. Do not ask a student for any personal contact information.
Since costs may vary year to year based on grade level and need, sponsorships must be renewed on a yearly basis. Each year you will be contacted to ensure that you would like to continue sponsoring your student.
If, for any reason, you would like to halt your sponsorship, contact us via email so that we can cancel your sponsorship and promptly seek a new sponsor for the student.
Building New Hope reserves the right to restrict or discontinue your sponsorship if we suspect inappropriate behavior or actions that do not align with our values.
