Campaign Help Someone Like You

“HELP SOMEONE LIKE YOU” CAMPAIGN

Did you know that our ALUMNI fundraising efforts for scholarships in 2020 now bear fruit? They allow Elvia Jimena, María Andrea, Melany, Marianicté, José and Mario to become future leaders of change and positively impact their communities.

 

There is someone out there like you, with the potential and the desire to do great things for the world. The support (#EARTHmandad) among our alumni creates new opportunities for incredible people to keep EARTH’s values alive and become a seed of hope for future generations.

 

If last year we managed to provide partial scholarships to 6 students of the Class of 2024, how many future agents of change will we help this year?

Why the campaign?

Investing in future leaders of change is investing in everyone’s future. Because there is someone out there like you who wants to transform the world, to contribute to the sustainable development of their countries and to build prosperous and just societies.
 

That is why, as an alumni community, we come together once again to give the opportunity to young leaders with excellent academic records, lacking economic resources, to start their studies at EARTH.

 

To build a better planet, help someone like you! Donate here.

 

Who can help?

Alumni, family members and/or friends of graduates can join this effort. We also invite companies, organizations, and foundations to contribute.
