Dear Donor

It has been more than a year since we started the joint Project between Puerta Abierta and Global Giving.  We would like to thank the generosity of all the individuals who have believed  in the development and progress of these 9 young ladies living in Puerta Abierta.

We are sure that this year´s achievement has left an important imprint both in the girls as well as in each one of you.

We are aware that an educational project cannot be finished in one year. Education is a multi-faceted phenomenon, one that is continual and never-ending.  With the support, work and generosity of many individuals, like you, we will continue to invest in the future of the girls of Puerta Abierta.

As a consequence of the benevolence and kindness of the people who visit Global Giving web-site, and its fund-raising program, we have been able to continue for an additional five months and finally we have fully funded this project.

Once again, we would like to thank you all for your faith in and support of our program at Puerta Abierta.

You can review the progress of the academic performance of the 9 girls in the “Evaluation of the Academic Year 2012- 2013“. We are pleased to see they did a very good job and we will keep them motivated to keep on.

We will be posting a new project soon in order to build the home for them, we are very exited as we will finally have our own home!  We will be in touch soon! Meanwhile if you want to keep on with your donation we invite you to visit us at www.puertaabierta.org or write an email to puertaabierta.connie@gmail.com, be confident that your donation as all the exeeding funds will be used only for the education program of the 9 girls. 

We will always value your generosity,

Learning to be Generous

Our girls
Our girls

One of the major objectives of Puerta Abierta is for these young women to learn to give, to be generous, and be willing to assist others in most need of help in any number of ways.

Our residents joined a group of families who are dedicated to help poverty-level communities, in which there are a wide-range of needs. This group offers conferences and a variety of activities. The young women from Puerta Abierta cooperate by playing with the young children or interacting with a group of young adults, playing basketball or conversing with the family members.

We believe that giving to others is not a question of how much you have. It dependes more so on your willingness to give of yourself. Our residents are grateful young women and are quite cognizant of how much they can offer to others. This experience has enriched their lives and we hope that it will become a positive experience for their future.

Fifteen Years, Quinceaneras!

Quinces
Quinces

 

Within the Mexican culture, turning 15 years old is a very significant moment for all young girls because it symbolizes the transition from being a girl to becoming a woman. The Mexican version of Sweet 16 in the US is the "Quinceañera", where all newly arrived 15 year olds are introduced into society. In the past two months, two of Puerta Abierta's girls turned 15. 
Puerta Abierta family is currently planning a party for our "quinceañeras"  and will enjoy watching them with their friends celebrate and have fun in this is once-in-a-life-time experience. However this symbolic celebration doesn't mean both of these 15 year old girls don't need you, they need your donations to keep up with their academic education in order to become independent and self sufficient.
According to Mexico's law, in 3 more years at 18 they will be considered legal adults nevertheless they are not ready to be out by themselves in the world and the Puerta Abierta family aimes to provide them a chance to be part of this family until the day they can go out in the world and fend for themselves. Thanks to your ongoing donations these girls will continue making their best effort with the opportunities you are giving them. 
Thank you for allowing them to have a second chance !
