Ana Gaby & Moni

Living in any social Group or society generally generates camaraderie but also competition among

its members. When this competition is healthy, it brings the best of each individual

These two sisters, Ana Gaby and Moni, the last family members of our family at Puerta Abierta,

did not arrived from a supportive and challenging educational environment, but did arrived with

a lot of discipline. We were greatly surprised when with a lot of courage,effort and perseverance

were able to cope with a new and more demanding educational level. Their performance so far

has been outstanding, showing that attitude and discipline can overcome any difficult

This example has motivated the rest of the girls in Puerta Abierta, to improve their grades,

studying harder. The end result has been a better and more competitive academic level handled as

a game amongst the girls.

It is important to underline the will and pride that these two sisters have, empowering them to

overcome their academic disadvantages at the start of this unintended, but productive contest.

Their example has motivated the rest of the girls, showing how to bring the best within them and

allowing them to achieve higher goals.

This event has taught us how a quiet, determined and consistent example as shown by Gaby

&Moni is a very effective technique to stimulate and/or change our behavior.

Last year of High School Margarita

Margarita
Margarita

Hello, my name is  Margarita, and I am in my last year of high school.

Looking back on my life I am surprised with all that I have achieved. It is hard to believe that what once was a blurred, sad, and hopeless vision, with very few options available in the first years of my life, is now a present and future with hope, excitement, and great expectations.

Even when I started to have positive changes in my life, I have to admit that it was very hard to perceive myself as a person who was on the right track; one which would lead me to all the things I was hoping for.

More importantly, I realize that I am not alone in this journey. The effort has not only been mine but has been shared with all the people in my life who have believed in me and taught me to value and appreciate my studies, discipline, and hard work. Consequently, I am about to begin my college degree.

My studies have been supported the last two years with your generosity through GlobalGiving.org, and for this I am grateful!

 In this stage of my life I am aware that it is essential to have an academic degree, to continue my personal development and realize my full potential.

 Puerta Abierta has the opportunity to receive funds today December the 3rd that will be matched at 100% by Giving Tuesday! Today is a great opportunity to fund this new stage of my life and head towards my independent life

 Margarita’s story is one of the many in Puerta Abierta which are heading towards a world of opportunities. A life that seemed sad, dark and doomed to fail, today seems filled with optimism and unlimited opportunities.

 We invite you today from 12:00 pm until December 4th 11:59 am to donate through Giving Tuesday campaign and feel proud to be part of these girls’ transformation into women who are educated, grateful, willing to give of themselves and all of what they have learned to the continuing growth and development of their “family”.

 https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/project-edit/edit-page-1.html?project.projId=9451

It is important to recognize the day-to-day effort these young women have exerted to fulfill their responsibilities. The support, trust and continued help offered by Global Giving, however, has been priceless in the girls’ ability to follow and realize their dreams. For this, we at Puerta Abierta, will be forever grateful.

 A simple “thank you” seems to fall far short of how we feel. It captures, nevertheless, our appreciation for all the changes that have taken place in Puerta Abierta as a consequence of all the help received from Global Giving.

Our success is for all and by all.

Congratulations Mercedes

Mer
Mer

In a home where 9 girls live, there is always an interesting story to tell. This time, we would like to share an experience which has made us feel quite proud.

Mercedes, who has never failed to surprise us, has once again given us a pleasant surprise. She finally finished the equivalent of her Junior High School program, and is now continuing with her High School studies. She is taking totally new courses for which she had no previous training. With academic help, guidance at home, and considerable self-motivation, she was able to pass satisfactorily her first monthly evaluation.

Once again this experience has reinforced the belief that personal motivation and dedication can compensate for any deficits or disabilities in order to overcome any obstacles in life. In our role as Mercedes’s family we will continue to work to help her maintain this resolve to succeed and continue to confront any new challenge with which she is faced

Congratulations Mercedes.
