Greetings Friends of VISIONAR!!

VISIONAR scholarships - great news!

Homecoming, and exciting news for 2013!

The week of Thanksgiving, I had the opportunity to travel back to Argentina, as I do every year, to meet with VISIONAR students and volunteers. This year it was particularly busy!

Asociación Atrapasueños, the local organization that manages VISIONAR scholarships, has always been extremely dedicated and supportive of our program. Their members, mostly retired teachers and school administrators, all volunteer their time generously to help our students, administer the funds, manage the annual student selection process, and so much more! Miss Evelina Feraudo, Atrapasueños' indefatigable founder and leader, arranged a promotional campaign for us during the week I spent there. We visited the local media, business leaders and government officials in order to garner support for the students in the form of additional donations.

As a result of all our work, we have two new donations for full scholarships: One from the local government, and one from the managing directors of local companies (Parque Industrial San Francisco). This, plus previous fundraising during the year, including the contributions from many of you reading this report, will allow VISIONAR to offer 6 new scholarships in 2013!! This is FANTASTIC news for us! Our active student base will go from 5 to 11 next year!

The profile of the new students, as well as the progress of our current ones deserve a whole separate report and will be sent soon.

Finally, I would like to express my deep gratitude to Mr. Martin Llaryora, San Francisco's Mayor, the directors of local manufacturing companies, Asociación Atrapasueños and each and every one of you for this HUGE impact we are all having in the lives of deserving college students!

Enjoy some of our pictures in the attachment. 

Lastly, on behalf of VISIONAR scholarships and Asociacion Atrapasueños, I send you all our best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year! And may we continue to do great things together!

Warmly,

Gabriela
