Becoming a sponsor is the most meaningful way to connect with a student in Chajul. Sponsors are directly matched with an individual scholar who attends Colegio Horizontes (opening in January 2022, with student prep classes running from July to December 2021).
As a sponsor, you make education possible by contributing to a student’s education and wraparound services at Limitless Horizons Ixil’s school. Those costs include small academic classes with highly trained local teachers, robust mentorship and non-academic support, daily nutritious breakfast and lunch, and school supplies. Your support will help make your sponsored scholar’s dreams become a reality.
Sponsors are kept informed of their sponsored student’s progress toward their goals through multiple updates per year that include photos, letters from the scholar (with English translations, if desired), and updates from the Limitless Horizons Ixil staff who work with the youth in Chajul. You will receive a unique glimpse into the life, challenges, growth, and triumphs of a budding leader. You may also write back if you’d like!
Become a sponsor today by making a recurring monthly gift via our online form.
A scholar’s education at Colegio Horizontes costs $2,400 annually, only 10% of the average cost of a public education in the U.S (not including meals). The expense breakdown is:
$900 Teacher & school administrator salaries & professional development
$800 Two nutritious meals each day (45 meals a month; 400 a year)
$500 Mentorship & wraparound support services
$200 Supplies, materials, technology, & equipment
Sponsors contribute $50-$200 monthly (or $600-$2,400 annually, if preferred) to make their student’s education a reality! Friends, families, community groups, book clubs, and co-workers are welcome to join together to sponsor a scholar. Sponsors of all levels transform the life of the child they sponsor, and all students receive the same level of services and education. Limitless Horizons Ixil covers the full cost of scholars’ studies through a variety of funding sources—grants, other individuals, and in some cases, multiple sponsors per student.
