Our scholarship program assists 10 students attending high schools, vocational schools and colleges who would otherwise not be able to afford an education because their parents work as food vendors, own small home businesses, in fields or as maids.

Scholarships pay for tuition, educational expenses and basic necessities such as transportation, uniforms and meals.

NCFC’s tutors and career counselors track student’s educational progress, develop leads for internships and jobs, and build social skills.

NCFC assists students access preventative health, medical and psychological resources.

 

 

 

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Juanita (18) - second year student at University of Leon, Agroecology

" Knowing that there are people who care about my success motivates me to study hard and move forward even when things get very difficult in my life, " said Juanita.

In 2010, Juanita's mother, a housemaid, enrolled her at Las Esperanzas so she could learn to sew and generate extra income for the family. Juanita finished the two year sewing course but also received the academic and personal support she needed to reach her dream of starting the university. With NCFC's financial support, Juanita is able to pay her educational expenses which her single parent mother could not afford. She recently teaching younger girls how to use recycled bottles for planters -- sharing with them her passion for conservation and plants. At Las Esperanzas, she started out sewing fabric and is now learning to sow seeds to feed her community.
