With your annual contribution to this program we are able to cover the cost of school uniforms, shoes, jackets, school bags, school supplies and books, tutorials and enrolment fees.
We offer special tutoring sessions on Saturdays for all primary school children who have sponsors. They are compulsory for all kids whose grades are below a certain level. We also offer English and mathematics tutorials for sponsored junior high school children.
You can sponsor a child for one year or commit to sponsoring him/her for several years.
Primary school: $ 3,500 Mexican pesos / $ 217 USD per year (includes PayPal commission)
Junior high school: $ 4,000 Mexican pesos / $ 250 USD per year (includes PayPal commission)
High school: $ 5,000 Mexican pesos / $ 310 USD per year (includes PayPal commission)
You can also support the training course for entering University or higher education for an outstanding student in his/her last year of high school. The competition for existing places makes it very hard for a student who graduates from the schools of Cholul to obtain a place in University. The pre-university training course helps our students compete for one of these places. In this case the contribution is $ 7,500 Mexican pesos / USD 465 per student (includes PayPal commission)
The positive results of the tutorials offered to the children sponsored by the program, combined with the availability of premises, encouraged us to extend this support program to other children in the school, which is why we are initiating tutorials on reading, writing and mathematics for primary school, and English and mathematics for junior high school and high school students.
You can support this program by helping us pay our teachers for a one hour class weekly:
$ 2,400 Mexican pesos / $ 150 USD for 6 months
$ 4,800 Mexican pesos / $ 300 USD per year
This choir was founded in 2017 to offer a means of self-expression to the children from disadvantaged backgrounds, with the aim of improving the quality of life of the population of Cholul.
From a social perspective, this choir has established itself as an alternative space for the children and young people of the community where they can spend their free time immersed in a creative and highly motivating activity while socializing in a safe and healthy environment, far from youth gangs and other negative influences.
The choir presently has 14 members, ranging from the age of 7 till 14 years. The rehearsals are 4 hours weekly divided into two two hour sessions. Since its creation, the SILIL youth choir has performed several concerts in private and public spaces, including presentations during our two 2018 fundraising concerts featuring professional singers and musicians.
Due to the choir´s positive impact in the community, we have a long waiting list of children and adolescents wishing to enter our auditions for the next possible date.
Any amount of donation will help us towards paying the yearly cost of operation of our choir which is
$ 75,000 MXN / USD 4,415 per year.

Recognizing the importance of creating purposeful recreational opportunities for the children and adolescents of our community by offering them activities that motivate them and support their development, in addition to our SILIL choir we decided to start offering guitar and keyboard classes. Before COVID 19, a total of 15 students participated in these programs. Currently require funds to ractive.
The Sports program has been extremely successful for the practice of basketball.
Currently, 35 children and adolescents represent the Cholul Scorpions with two teams (mixed and male) that participate in leagues and friendly matches inside and outside the community.
The boys and girls train on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6.30 to 8 pm.
The practice of sport promotes their comprehensive well-being in a positive way by developing both physical and mental skills and competencies, preparing them to face adversities and make assertive decisions for the future.
