#531523 - Providing quality education and forming bilingual and bicultural leaders for the church and society

Annual Goal:$65,000.00
Location:El Paso United States North America

Describe the need affecting the community.

The community is in need of quality education resources for the children of the area. This quality education will in turn provide opportunities that would not likely otherwise exist.

How will this Advance project help to address the need?

This need is addressed by enabling graduates to attend institutions of higher learning at a rate of over 90% of the student body.

Describe the primary goal of the project.

Currently approximately 95% of graduates attend college. Our goal is to achieve 100%. Additionally we would like to increase the number of students that attend seminary and major Christian colleges and universities. Also, to increase the availability of scholarships to deserving students that are unable to afford this education.

Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project.

We would like to be the standard bearer when it comes to bi-cultural and English language education in the region.
