BECA is dedicated to empowering youth education in Nicaragua.
Specifically, BECA facilitates technical school scholarships for committed high school graduates who can't afford to continue their education.
Candidates are qualified via a six month screening process that includes a computer course and full-time volunteering in a primary school.
Those that finish receive a scholarship to study a technical career of their choice. The scholarship includes transportation expenses, tuition and books.
BECA supervises their progress by monthly visits to either their home or school.
