Scholarship &Outreach Program                   

Many families in town live in a state of poverty that is incomprehensible. There are real lives of children in San Pancho that could dramatically change for the better if given the opportunity of education. Entreamigos looks to connect Scholarship Donors with needy students in town.

Scholarship recipients are exceptional students with limited resources and we provide them with everything they need in order to stay focused on their studies.

Entreamigos also runs a social assistance program which provides support to students of very limited resources regardless of their academic ability. If you want to know more about our scholarship program write to scholarships@entreamigos.org.mx, or click here
