PathMakers: A PathMaker underwrites a full sponsorship of a PathLight student. Cost: $2400 annually
BridgeBuilders: Six BridgeBuilder sponsors contribute to the full sponsorship of a PathLight student. Cost: $34/month
One-time donation of any amount.
A full sponsorship annually covers the student’s tuition, uniforms, books, school supplies, hot lunch, transportation, tutoring, and over 400 hours of mentoring, leadership development, and Christian character formation.
Each school year, students from across Belize apply for PathLight sponsorships. This process includes student essays, teacher recommendations, family financial information, assessment testing, grade reports, scores on national standardized testing, and a formal in-person interview.
PathLight searches for those students who demonstrate the highest potential for academic success, and have the least financial means to realize their dreams.

Because education is the surest path out of poverty, we encourage all students to go as far as they need to. Together with dedicated sponsors, we enable approximately 25% of our students to continue with tertiary education.
Although this is rare, we will notify you and give you the option to choose another student.
