 Because of the growth of Icthus there’s a critical need for funds to train guides.   Icthus country teams struggle to raise the funds needed to provide training because many of the guides and churches are poor.  Scholarships make a big difference.  The average cost of a scholarship is just $15 for one guide.


1 guide=$15       4 guides=$60      8 guides=$120     10 guides=$150  

   14 guides=$210       16 guides=$240         20 guides=$300       40 guides=$600  

START A NEW GROUP - Help start groups in more towns in Latin America.  The average cost to start a new group is $150. Once started they can last for years.


$50=1/3 of a group     $100=2/3 of a group    $150=one group           $300=two groups


You can write in the Project, Country, or Icthus leader you would like to designate your gift for.
