Keeping classrooms staffed with with qualified, motivated teachers is one of the best ways to ensure a quality education for CENIT's children.

It costs about $8,400 to cover a full year's salary for a qualified educator.  One of ECHO's goals is to fully cover the salary of at least one teacher per year.

Sponsor a teacher for a day, week, month, or year and be a true classroom hero!

Donate for a Teacher's Salary

Donate to Adopt A Dream

General donations are very important to CENIT; they help pay for expenses like the electric bill, food in the cafeteria, and facility maintenance.   These funds are critically important in helping CENIT keep their doors open, and lights on (literally).

Your donation of any amount makes a huge difference.
