Where to donate: http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/support-education-in-argentina/
We thank you in advance for your generous support
How are VISIONAR funds utilized? The totality of the funds we raise is applied to each student’s expenses: tuition, books & supplies, transportation and meals. Expense reports per student are available upon request.
Who are the VISIONAR students receiving help?
In Argentina's university system, the student that demonstrates academic excellence and leadership is recognized by representing their school in public ceremonies and by bearing the Argentine flag. This is the highest honor that a college student can aspire to, the equivalent of the magna cum laude distinction in the US system. This year, at UCES University, that honor went to one of our VISIONAR students: Maria Angela Contreras.
Please open the attached document to read more...
Your donations make it possible for Maria Angela and the other twelve VISIONAR students to continue working toward their college degrees. Thank you!
Greetings Friends of VISIONAR!!
In the attached report, Pamela Pinciroli, one of twelve VISIONAR scholarship recipients, tells us about her experience in college and what it means to her. (To read the report, please open the attached pdf).
Pamela is currently attending her first year of Political Science studies at Universidad de Villa Maria, in the province of Cordoba, Argentina.
I hope you feel excited about and proud of the work that all of us, as partners, are getting accomplished. With VISIONAR scholarships, we are making a difference, one student at a time.
As always, blessings and many thanks.
