Help students stay in school and achieve their dreams!

In Guatemala, children only attend school for free through 9th grade. Even if they complete high school, college is typically not an option due to lack of financial resources. Our higher education program helps students make strides toward a better life by helping them complete high school and go to college.

Be Part of the Solution!

Donate to the Sela Nelson Higher Education Fund
By donating to the Sela Nelson Higher Education Fund, you can help support students who are waiting for a sponsor. Sela was a beloved, long-time volunteer and trip participant with PID and helped launch the Higher Education program. She passed away from cancer in 2013 but her memory and hard work live on through each student’s achievements.
