All children in our Children’s Program receive financial aid from Casa Xalteva that covers the cost of school including registration, test fees, uniform fees, and school supplies.

Everyday Casa Xalteva feeds around 30 people at lunch time: 18 kids, 7 teachers, and 5 other staff. We consider sharing a meal all together an important component of our Children’s Program and part of a community/family environment. We currently allot $125 per week for lunch, prepared by our cheff extraordinaire Olma. Sponsor lunch for a week: ($125)
In Nicaragua, many people do not eat breakfast. This was true for many of the children in our program. Here at Casa Xalteva we share a simple but healthy breakfast of milk and bread for the children, with special breakfasts on Friday’s. We currently allot $25 per week for our breakfast program. Sponsor breakfast for the children for a month: ($100)

Sponsor scholarship for one month ($30) or one academic year ($300)
Gregory Nevala Calvert University Scholarship

Contribute toward an endowment to fund this scholarship permanently (Any amount welcome).
