Social Work — Sponsorship
Similar to other organizations, Students International has a sponsorship program that allows people the opportunity to sponsor children from Guatemala. This program is active in several schools in and around Magdalena. Sponsored children receive benefits, including help with tuition, school uniforms, health care, dental care, eye care, school supplies, and more. The sponsorship team will visit the schools and homes of sponsored children, put together special meeting or parties, and help the teachers and parents to provide improved education and care for the children. The sponsorship team may help teach Nutritional Workshops at the Community Center and assist with office work related to running the program. Building relationships with the children and their families during home visits is a fundamental aspect of the sponsorship site and participants will be active in following up on the medical, educational, and spiritual needs of the children.
