Organized by: Sara Isett

Your donation will help us send five English students to school for an entire year!

Washington English Academy is a small, privately owned English school located in Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico, about 30 minutes north of the resort town Puerto Vallarta. Every year, my boss, Mr. Saul Robles, offers a scholarship to one or two students he thinks are particularly motivated to learn English. He subsidizes these scholarships out of his own pocket.

I've seen the good that speaking English brings to the students of Washington English Academy and this year I want to go BIG! My goal is to raise $6800! This amount will cover the cost of books and tuition for 5 students for the whole school year.

Mr. R, as his students call him, has been teaching for more than 20 years. His methods work and his teaching skills have been an inspiration to me. I teach the advanced classes entirely in English at the school and my students understand and respond to me thanks to their studies with Mr. R.

Students at Washington Academy range in age from 11 to 50 or 60 years old. Every one of them benefits from the giant opportunities and cultural expansion that come from speaking English. The economy of the entire Riviera Nayarit region is based on tourism. To truly succeed in such an economy our Mexican students need English.

So please help me improve the economic chances of these folks and make a donation now. Whether you can give $10 or $1000, every cent will go toward changing lives, expanding horizons, and learning to speak English—the worldwide lingua franca.

And of course, please help me get this message out by sharing my fund raising efforts with your friends and family. Together we can do this!

As they say here locally....muchisimas gracias!!
