THE SCHOLARSHIP EDUCATION PROGRAM
The Scholarship Education Program provides more than 150 elementary and secondary students with scholarships to attend school. Most of these children could not attend school otherwise. Two university students are also in the program thanks to the help of a generous Predisan friend.
A Scholarship donation of $300 for one year provides a child with a required school uniform, shoes, school supplies, access to medical care, tutoring and counseling by our staff, and a monthly stipend to help the child and the family.
Students are chosen on the basis of economic need, academic initiative and the willingness of parents to actively participate in the child’s education. Scholarship students and their parents submit receipts for purchases, report grades at the end of each semester, and attend monthly meetings featuring speakers and special activities designed to strengthen the students’ and parents’ dedication to education.
A committee of Predisan employees and the Predisan chaplains collaborate with scholarship program leaders in making home visits to help motivate children and parents.

HOW TO SPONSOR A STUDENT
Are you interested in sponsoring an elementary or secondary student in Predisan’s Scholarship Education Program? Scholarship donors are needed each year, and your help would truly make the difference in the life of a child.
To sponsor a child for one year, you may donate one of two ways:
- CLICK HERE to donate $300 online for each child you wish to sponsor (or send a check to Predisan, Post Office Box 72618, Marietta, GA 30007), or
- E-mail Sharon Kemp at firstname.lastname@example.org to donate $25 monthly by bank draft for each child you wish to sponsor. Monthly donations by bank draft begin in February of each year.
School in Honduras runs from February until November, and commitments for new sponsors are finalized from November until the school year starts in February. You can commit at any time to help during the next school year.
