Sponsoring a Student
Compassion in Action’s sponsorship program partners you with students’ families to make a quality Christian education accessible for children whose families cannot afford the actual cost. At the same time, we have learned the importance of families investing in their children’s education, so we charge a tuition fee of $22/month. This helps families value and prioritize the education they are receiving at DCA and moves us towards our vision of self-sustainability. For the many families who need more tuition assistance, your sponsorship enables us to grant scholarships. The percentage of each discount is determined through dialoguing with parents, verifying financial situations, and prayer. God’s provision through your generous, long-term commitment enables the daily operations of DCA, reaching children with the gospel in a caring environment that challenges them to grow and become servant leaders.
A Prayer Connection
All of our students benefit from having a committed prayer partner to intercede for their academic, relational, spiritual, and emotional lives. We provide you with personal updates on your student once or twice a year so you can follow his/her academic journey and have a better idea of how to pray.
Your personal connection with them makes them feel special and cared for, but in order to avoid creating a dependent mindset, we ask that you channel communication through Compassion in Action.
Compassion in Action never turns a child away because they don’t have a sponsor. In fact, only 34% of our students are currently sponsored. We are determined to partner sponsors with students because we know how powerful sponsor’s prayers are for students’ lives.
Stewarding Your Money:
- Pays the scholarship amount (varies per student) plus the $18 difference between the tuition charged and the actual amount it costs for a child to attend school monthly
- Upon graduation (kindergarten, 6th grade, and high school), each student is gifted a Bible
- Helps to pay the Nicaraguan teaching staff, who lovingly support each student’s educational journeys and open each day with prayer and Bible teaching
- Provides children with a nutritious lunch each school day
- Maintenance of the physical learning environment so that students have safe classrooms
- Pays custodians to ensure a clean campus
- Keeps the lights on and water running!
To ensure that sponsorship money is used for children’s education (as intended), it does not go directly to our students or families.
Providing an education for students would not be possible without a qualified staff. Our teachers, administration team, custodians, cooks, guards, and maintenance workers at DCA are loving individuals committed to our students and the mission of our school.
For $100 per month your contribution can support and encourage our dedicated teachers. Perhaps you have a heart for preschool, math, science, or Bible studies. Adult lives are also impacted by Compassion in Action through employment opportunities and through the family-like community we have developed. Our staff not only enjoy a dependable paycheck (a BIG deal in our community), but also emotional support, spiritual encouragement, and professional development.
Your sponsorship of our teaching staff will help to pay for on-going training, materials and other supplies that are vital to any educational environment.
You may specify a teacher sponsorship on the donation page.
When Jesus saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them...and He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest field."
Matthew 9:36, 38
