Our goal is to improve the educational opportunities for the Corozal Church of Christ (CCofC) youth by providing funding for further schooling in the Corozal District of Belize.
The principal at the CCofC elementary school helps us identify 1 or 2 students who might be a worthy recipient of the Serenity Sands Scholarship. Each prospective student supplies us with an essay letter, grade transcripts and proof of volunteer work.
If the student has a personal sponsor, or if the fund has the required amount, a full scholarship is presented. We pay all tuition fees and purchase the books, supplies, uniforms, and shoes required. A partial scholarship pays all tuition fees.
Without funding, many of these students would not be able to attend high school (or college as it is called here in Belize). They sincerely appreciate the funding Serenity Sands makes available through your generous donations. Please help us continue to provide this support. There are minimal banking fees, but then all remaining funds donated go into the scholarship program.
If you have any questions about supporting a CCofC student, please contact us at [email protected].
Thank you, your support makes a difference in the lives of these students.
We have 4 students in the program this year. Josue is finishing his last year of 6th form with a personal sponsor. Shamira is going onto her 1st year of 6th form and has a personal sponsor. Joselle is partially sponsored and is in entering 4th form. Our latest scholarship recipient is Tyler Daniels is entering 2nd, who has received a partial sponsored.
Brandy Palacio graduated CCC with honours in 2016. She has continued onto 6th form, sadly we at Serenity Sands did not have the funds to help with her ongoing education.
Josue Aque also graduated from CCC in 2016. Josue's sponsor has continued to help with his education and he is currently in 6th form.
