Sponsors typically agree to provide annual support through the equivalent of high school: 6 years, 1 year at a time. They receive photos of their students, the families, and their homes, and quarterly grade reports and letters. Although many sponsors are individuals and couples, some students are sponsored by groups of friends or extended families. Those sponsors who have visited their students in San Pedro La Laguna have found it to be a deeply rewarding experience. For more specifics, please see the Donate page.
