barrio_1Schools around the country want to implement the Barrio Curriculum, and while we offer it for free, budget cuts are preventing these schools from using our program to impact their students.

Here is where you can make a difference.

For only $445, you can sponsor a classroom of 25 kids:

  • Your donation is tax deductible.
  • You choose the school.
  • We print and ship the books.
  • We provide the curriculum.

For checks and money orders please send to: PO Box 4733 Aurora, IL 60507.
