How We Help


Each sale helps a Paraguayan student in need

 

 Bati is rooted in our desire to provide more opportunities for disadvantaged Paraguayan youth. We've been involved for over a decade with The Macchi School, a grade 7-12 high school which provides scholarships to the smartest and most economically-disadvantaged students in Tobati, Paraguay.
  We've seen what's possible when these students gain access to the resources they need to succeed. It's the fuel that drives them on their quest to make a better life for themselves and their family. Some have become journalists, others doctors. Some have learned English and gone on to graduate from Ivy Leagues (former Macchi Student Joel Unzain pictured above at UPENN graduation in 2017). All of them have come back to their community and inspired real change. 
  Our mission is to support this cycle by providing educational resources to students on their journey to earn a university degree. Bati uses proceeds from each sale to help Paraguayan students pay for extra English classes, college-prep courses, and tuition.
