EVENT DATE Nov 22, 2015

THE STORY:

Founded in 2000 by Suzye and Barry Lawson, Amigos de la Educación, is a non-profit educational and scholarship foundation. 

The charity has done amazing work for the children of Guanacaste, Costa Rica, over the years, providing educational classes, safety workshops, and most importantly many scholarships to deserving students in need. The money that was stolen was intended to pay for scholarships for seven local children who attend local Guanacaste grade schools, high schools and universities. These students have no other means to pay for their tuition fees without the support of Amigos de la Educacion. Without their scholarships, the education of these children will be in great jeopardy.

Please do not let these students become additional victims in this terrible tragedy. Please help us honor the spirit of Barry and his great work. Please help his wife Suzye fulfill the promise they made to local children to support their education. All funds donated to Amigos through this campaign will be received by their longtime nonprofit partner CEPIA who will manage the scholarship fund going forward. All funds donated to the Amigos de la Educacion Fundraiser will directly benefit scholarship recipients and local schools. Any questions regarding the funds for the scholarship program should be directed to Laetitia Deweer at cepiacostarica@gmail.com. 

Donations are also being accepted via the following:

Bank Name: BCR / Account Number: 001-1379975-4 (USD$)
Client number 1520200113799754-8
Cedula juridica CEPIA: 3-002-417696

Fundada en el año 2000 por Suzye y Barry Lawson, Amigos de la Educación, es una entidad sin fines de lucro y una fundación para becas. Ellos ofrecen servicios educativos de calidad a estudiantes y docentes que viven en Guanacaste, Costa Rica, desde el kinder hasta la universidad.


La caridad ha hecho un trabajo increíble por los niños de Guanacaste, Costa Rica, a lo largo de los años, ofreciendo clases educativas, talleres de seguridad, y lo más importante muchas becas a estudiantes con grandes necesidades. El dinero robado estaba destinado para el pago de becas locales de siete niños que asisten a las escuelas locales de Guanacaste, escuelas secundarias y universidades. Estos estudiantes no tienen otros medios para pagar sus derechos de matrícula sin el apoyo de Amigos de la Educación. Sin sus becas, la educación de estos niños está en grave peligro.

We, unfortunately, never had the opportunity to meet Barry. As I read the account of the tragic event, I could only fathom what a tremendous loss it is to the community that Barry lived in and served. Our prayers go out to his immediate family, and only hope that the outstanding contributions that Barry made, will continue on in his honor. 3 years ago
