In Nicaragua, school is only mandatory until age 11, meaning a high school education is a luxury many children can not afford. Most students end up stopping their schooling after the 6th grade due to lack of resources and funding. To help these children lead successful lives, Building New Hope provides scholarships for motivated students to attend high school and receive a quality education.

Join us today in helping these children achieve educational success!


  • How is sponsorship money used?
    In order for the money to be used effectively for the benefit of the students, the money donated by the sponsors is pooled in a collective fund. This allows us to not only provide for your specific sponsored child, but to help all children as a whole, even those who may not have a sponsor.
  • What does each sponsored child receive?
    With a monthly sponsorship of $ 35, each sponsored child will receive a school scholarship that covers the cost of matriculation to school along with tuition, a backpack with school supplies, a uniform, and transportation. (This is broken down into a monthly fee for monthly donors.) If your sponsorship is a one-time donation, you can choose to donate $ 269 for the cost of matriculation and tuition, or $ 35 for a backpack with school supplies or $ 30 for a uniform.
  • Can I check on my sponsored student's progress at school?
    As a sponsor, you will receive an annual update that indicates your student's participation and progress in school. These are provided only as progress updates to demonstrate the student's continued participation in school. They are not intended for sponsors to assess their students' weaknesses or areas that need improvement. It is of the utmost importance that these students are encouraged to continue to achieve in their classes!

With a monthly donation of $35, you can sponsor one of the students above as they further their education and keep in touch with them through encouraging letters.


A one-time donation of $269 would fully fund a high school scholarship for one of the students above.


You can also donate money in any amount directly toward the education of these children, whether it be for additional supplies, activities, or students who may not have a sponsor.


An encouraging letter of support to one of these students can make a world of a difference and motivate them to continue working hard!


  • To protect the privacy of the children and their families, no contact is to be made with students except through Building New Hope. Do not ask a student for any personal contact information.

  • Sponsorships will automatically be renewed on a yearly basis until the child graduates from school. 

  • If, for any reason, you would like to halt your sponsorship, contact us via email to: so that we can cancel your sponsorship and promptly seek a new sponsor for the student.
