About the Foundation
Pan De Vida Scholarship Foundation was founded in 2018, and our foundation is a nonprofit, seeking to help children who need educational resources. We focus on Christian education because we value what our children learn, and we value the people who shape their minds. The environment of Christian education is surrounded by those who will take the time to instill good habits, morals, and ensure that each child receives the help they need.
In just a short span, our foundation has grown rapidly in terms of the number of scholarships granted. From 2018 to 2019, we’ve had three (3) scholars in the USA. The numbers jumped to 45 scholars in the USA, 13 in Mexico, and three (3) in Colombia from 2019 to 2020 and in the 2020-2021 period we kept growing and almost double the number of scholarship, reaching 81 students: 23 in the USA, 9 in Colombia and 49 in Mexico. Thanks to our sponsors, donors, and volunteers who work tirelessly to help less privileged students get the education they need.
