Tekmovil’s partnership with the organization began in November 2020 with a commitment to sponsor a group of 20 school-aged girls in Santa Maria, Colombia at a Brighter Children partner school, Oasis of Hope. The donation included full school fees for all 20 girls, 100% of profits going towards school resources and efficiency, including lunch, medical care, transportation to and from school, as well as teachers’ salaries.
This year’s donation expansion includes a new partnership with a Brighter Children partner school in Hondurascalled Students Helping Honduras, sponsoring 20 extra tuition fees, and by Colombia covering the full cost of annual tuition for sponsored students due to inflation and an increase in the cost of living and school supplies.
“We know the impact of a good education on breaking down barriers for children in poor areas, and with that in mind, we wanted to expand our partnership with Brighter Children,” said Claudia Rodriguez, COO of Tekmovil. “Our hope with this partnership is that we not only give these children the opportunity to continue learning, but also open the doors of opportunity for them.”
The sponsorship in Honduras recognizes the region’s staggering poverty rate (66%), currently the most unequal country Latin America. Only 2% of the wealthiest students in Honduras attend a bilingual private school. Consequently, very few people speak English in Honduras. Students Helping Honduras promises that 100% of their students will be fluent in English when they graduate.
“Through our continued support with other sponsors, Brighter Children can continue to change lives,” said Ms. Rodríguez. “We believe that the best way to stop the cycle of poverty is to support children in their education. Developing future leaders through educational skills will enable them to overcome obstacles and turn their dreams into reality.”
