No more excuses! Maria wants to learn more

Maria: mother and student
Maria: mother and student

With your help, single mothers from low income communities can access technology and high quality education. After students, mothers are the second group attending the RIA or Learning and Innovation Network. Here's Marías story:

"My name is Maria Felix Ocampo Noverón. I'm 38 years old. 

We started the course three weeks ago with teacher Esmeralda. The truth is I learn something new every day, in each class. My life has changed since I started the course, I am excited and want to learn more. I started coming because a friend told me she was studying computing and she told me where. I didn't know it was a Foundation and I was amazed because my excuse was always that I didn't have any money, but I had never looked for a place like the RIA. 

I like the RIA: everyone can access courses to learn new skills, how to find a job, how to do homework or just to update with new technologies. The school is very nice, their facilities are modern and it has a good vibe.

My daughter also comes to a Computer course. 
The teacher is excellent, because she's very patient.

I would like to know more about computers and then study English. I hope I can start soon". 

Help mothers like María change their lives and teach their children to leave excuses behind and work for a brighter future. Thank you for your donation.

Studying for a better future

 

Luis Alberto is learning how to use a computer. Now he can do his homework at the RIA Center and is learning how to use technology to acomplish his dreams. 

He writes to us:

"I really like learning new things and also learning more things (...) The teacher doesn't let us eat junk food and he's a good teacher". 

Thanks for helping us give scholarships to children like Luis Alberto. Now he enjoys studying and he's making new friends! Gifts from donors like you provide the support needed to continue our mission of bridging the digital divide in Mexico by providing low-income communities with quality educational opportunities and access to digital technologies.

A brighter future for mexican aspiring scientists

Just graduated!
Just graduated!

Hello dear doner: 

Gifts from donors like you provide the support needed to continue our mission of bridging the digital divide in Mexico by providing low-income communities with quality educational opportunities and access to digital technologies.

For aspiring scientists this means having scholarships to study english and learn about new technologies. This prepares them to have a brighter future and have a chance to help their communities. 

The large youth demographic in Latin America represents an enormous source of current and future demand for quality education. Our successful track record in marginalized Mexican neighborhoods can offer similar opportunities to the rapidly growing and largely underserved Hispanic market across Latin America and in the United States. 

Thank you for being a part of this!
