The St. Francis Xavier High School scholarship fund funds the educations of 5 students
Students from Cinquera, El Salvador
$10 000 last year
"It was a humbling experience that put a lot of things into perspective" -- Jessica Cucinelli, graduate Holy Trinity
"You don't truly understand the majority world (third world) until you've stood in solidarity with the people who live there" -- Juliana McLaren, student grade 12 St. Francis Xavier High School
"Our need for more has caused us to invade our brothers' homes, steal what they have and forced them to support our society at the cost of the stability and healthy growth of their own"-- Jamie Conklin, grade 12, St. Francis Xavier High School
Clear difference in the communities that are helped by SalvAide.
Every student that receives a scholarship, every women's group that gets a micro-credit is a success.
Still more to be done.
