SOL International Foundation has been working on Roatan for over 15 years to promote education and increase the quality of life for the at risk youth on the island. We have learned some important lessons along the way. The most important being that in order for our scholarship students to have the best chance of success, we need a comprehensive approach that addresses all aspects of their well being and not only academics- self esteem, mental health, family support, nutrition, and physical health.

We have now been offering a more holistic approach that emphasizes identifying and building on the strengths and resilience of our youth. Rather than focusing solely on deficits and problems, it recognizes their potential and empowers them to overcome challenges. This approach boosts their self-esteem, motivation, and sense of agency, fostering a positive attitude towards personal growth and development. We are currently gearing up for the 2024 school year. Therefore, we not only need funds for tuition, transportation, and school supplies. We also are looking to cover the cost of our full time tutor and psychologist so that we can continue to offer our "SOL kids" this holistic approach.

Our scholarship program is our largest expense of the year and we are honored to have donors that support this program each year. Every year we try and grow this program by adding more students and offering more services to these scholarship students. Every dollar adds up and there is no donation too small. Donations can be one time or setup as monthly recurring donations. If you are interested in more active involvement, you could also sponsor a child and receive updates on their grades and progress.
