Provide a Scholarship

Every child has God-given talent. But not every child has the opportunity to use them. As you come alongside a child by providing a full scholarship, you open the doors to a bright and positive future.

Fund a Scholarship

A unique approach to a strong and positive future

Cost of an annual scholarship: $50/month ($600 a year)

Every child receives:

  • A Christian education
  • Dedicated Christian teachers
  • After-school help and tutoring
  • Daily nutritional supplement
  • Regular health checkups
  • Experience sports, art, music and field trips

Every family is supported by:

  • Courses on financial literacy
  • Conflict resolution classes
  • Health and hygiene information
  • Seminars on family life and civics

Walk alongside a child! You will receive:

  • A photo of and information of the child receiving the scholarship
  • Regular updates: two reports and new photos every year

The opportunity to:

  • Write the child and their family
  • Pray for the child
  • Visit your child on a Generation Rising Learning trip or we will help you visit on your own
  • Giving them a quality, Christian education
  • Preparing them for school by making sure they have a uniform and textbooks
  • Equipping their teachers through teacher training
  • Helping develop the school and the community

For many families, school is a luxury. While they long for their child to have a better start than they did, many just don’t have the financial resources to make sure their child goes to school. They are required to contribute to the school—either through small school fees or volunteering.

We welcome your support and the relationship you will build with the child you are supporting. The children love receiving letters and small gifts (we’ll send some things in our regular mail that will be easy to send).

Basically, we ask that you keep the letter short and friendly. Because we have to translate it for the child, it is best is the letter is clearly written. Some ideas to write about are:

  • Tell the child about your family. Maybe you could add a photo to the letter.
  • Tell them about Canada, especially the seasons. Most children have never seen snow! And your letters help them understand more about other countries.
  • Ask them about their family.
  • Remind them that you think about them and are praying for them.
  • Encourage them in their studies.
  • Consider adding a gift. Small gifts that fit into an envelope are ideal. Children love stickers, photos, small booklets and bookmarks.

Send your gifts to Generation Rising. We will translate them and make sure your child receives them. The letters will take up to two months to get to the child as postal systems in Latin America are slow.

The best way to send a gift is to make a donation to Generation Rising with the specific request to give your child a gift. Our team at the school will purchase a gift that matches the need of the family and child. Shipping packages overseas is expensive and they can get lost.

We encourage you to visit the child, their school and family! It’s an experience you will never forget. Let us know at least 3 months before your departure date and we will help you coordinate your visit. You can contact us at or call us at 204-415-6836.

You can also visit the child and their family by joining us on an annual learning trip.

We understand there are situations that mean you can no longer provide a scholarship for a child. We ask that you contact us at least 2 weeks before your monthly payment. It’s important that the child does not lose their place at the school; we will make sure they are supported until we find a new supporter to fund the scholarship.

We celebrate every graduation! We will notify you when they graduate. With your permission, we will also send the information of another student from the school who needs funding.

If you have more questions or require more information, please don’t hesitate to email us at or call us at 204-415-6836.
