Step by Step Scholarship Program
International Samaritan worked in partnership with the University of Central America’s Institute of Public Opinion to better determine the most urgent and pressing needs of children and families living in the garbage dump of Guatemala City. The overwhelming majority of people living in the garbage dump who responded to the survey indicated they wanted better access to education after the sixth grade. In 2007, the Step by Step Scholarship Program was officially implemented and now gives hundreds of opportunities to students across four countries to continue their education, get job training, graduate, and become employed.
