List of Students Awaiting Sponsors
Adelante Estudiante is the name of our student sponsorship program.
Students listed below are looking for sponsors. All of the students meet Adelante Estudiante eligibility criteria of 80% out of 100% GPA and a family income of no more than approximately $6,000 pesos per month. Because of family circumstances, these students are at high risk of not finishing school if they do not receive sponsors.
Adelante Estudiante offers you an opportunity to track the student whom you select to sponsor. You can even meet your student and get to know their family. We have bilingual volunteers who can help. Or, perhaps you just want to know how the student is doing from a distance. That is ok too. We will send updates twice a year about their progress in school.
We do not assign more than one sponsor per student unless you tell us that you want to share the expenses with someone else. 100% of your donation goes to the student you select. We encourage you to make a long-term investment your student -- at least until they finish high school.
If you aren't interested in having a personal connection with a student and their family, we suggest that you make a general donation to the Adelante Estudiante program and we will make sure that 100% of it goes to a student in need. Click here to make a general donation.
Students are assigned to sponsors on a first come, first serve basis. We try to keep this list as up to date as possible, but there can be a day or two when students appear on the list even though they have already been requested for sponsorship. We apologize in advance if you select a student and later find that he or she has already been sponsored. We also leave students on the list until we have received payment from new sponsors. You might see an announcement "SPONSOR PENDING" at the end of a student's profile. You can still request these students, and they will be assigned to you if no payment is received from their initial sponsor.
Please browse the student profiles below and click on the associated link if you find a student whom you would like to sponsor. The link will initiate an email to Castaway Kids. You will receive an email with instructions for sponsorship within a day or two.
