The annual Scholarship Drive for students in Magome, Tanzania and San Lucas, Guatemala has kicked off! Salem has had a relationship with congregations in these two countries for many years. Secondary school in Tanzania and Guatemala is not provided by the government. To go to school students must attend a private or church sponsored school.
In Guatemala this is about $250.
In Tanzania it is between $250-$425.
In Magome, students attend a boarding school miles away from the village. The cost to most families is out of their reach – so we at Salem help. Last year we helped 15 kids in San Lucas and 17 kids in Magome get an education. Please consider a gift of any size to help these kids. If you would like to make a payment with a check, please make it out to Salem Lutheran Church and on the memo line, indicate which scholarship you are giving to (Tanzania or Guatemala). Please mail your check to the address below. You can also pay online.
