The Echo International Scholarship Fund (EISF) was created in honor of Shauna Banet, who journeyed from her home in Ireland to attend ECHO in the summer of 2016. Only a few weeks after returning home, she tragically died at the age of 17. We recognize the dignity of her life and want to allow her legacy to benefit others through this scholarship fund. Shauna, along with two others, fundraised for over a year in order to be able to attend ECHO. Their determination and openness to receive were an inspiration to all at the camp.
The EISF exists to help international participants be able to attend an experience of ECHO and to receive the teaching of the Theology of the Body, which is not offered to many of them in their respective countries.
