Several DFA volunteers have sponsored students from the Comitancillo area to attend agricultural school in the nearest city, San Marcos. The students must apply for the scholarship through AMMID, and are carefully selected based on criteria that includes the requirement to share the knowledge through AMMID’s network and their community farm, which is used to teach local farmers the science behind farming, as well as dietary guidance on which crops are more essential based on nutritional values.

DFA volunteers have also sponsored students in El Remate and the surrounding communities.  The students are chosen by Project Ix-Canaan and preference is given to girls, since most families elect to educate their boys if they have to choose between their sons and daughters.
