The mission of BECAS is to provide resources that will empower the children of Barrio Santa Maria in Quito to break the cycle of poverty. BECAS’s program is a well rounded, year long scholarship program that consists of a scholarship to attend public schools, basic medical, dental and vision care, family support, parenting classes, cultural field trips, community service participation, tutoring, as well as extracurricular activities to realize their hopes and dreams of moving the next generation out of the barrio.

Our program is a success in part because of the support of our donors. Please consider donating to BECAS or sponsoring a scholar for $500/year.
