I triggered a (partial)payout for these needs:

Second semester transportation 2013€86.00
Driver with truck to transport Student€184.00

The funds from this donation will help the students finish the school year.  This year in Ecuador the school year is running on until March instead of ending at the end of January.  With two extra months of classes the parents desperately need aid to help pay for the transportation.  100% of the funds donated for this funding goes directly to pay for the two drivers taking the kids to high school each day. The parents and students are very appreciative of the aid that they receive through betterplace.org.

Dearest Friends,  The at the end of april the school year will start.  Thanks for all your donations we will have a good amount to start the year. We will be needing more funds as the school year progresses.   I´ll be putting up photos of the students once the school year starts.  

Thanks again, Sandy

School year begins at the end of April

Hi everyone. Thanks again for all your donations.  This means so much for the students and the parents.  The Ecuadorian education system has changed the requirements for graduating from grade school. Now to graduate a student has to complete 7th and 8th grade.  The local rural schools do not have 7th and 8th grades so the students have to travel to Apuela to attend the middle school to be able to graduate from gradeschool.  The Ecuadorian government does not supply transportation for the students.  You are not only helping provide a high school eduaction but the basic grade school education for over thirty students.  Thank you so much, Sandy
