Bulletin News #2 Come to see our work!

Once again we want to thank all those people that have helped our project to develop communities at risk. This is our second report of the year and we are very excited to share with you all of the achievements, activities, good news among other results.

In March we delivered education supplies to 200 children and teenagers in the communities we work in. This is not only an investment in their education but also an investment to support their dreams and help them build a better future.

Another important event was the leadership camp in which most of our staff was composed of people that belong to one of the communities we are working in (Triangulo de la Solidaridad). This was really a dream come true for our organization since many of these young people have been attending to our program to develop leadership skills and are now assessing the teenagers in Lincoln high school which is one of the most expensive institutions in the country and the big social gap that exists between them was not an obstacle.

Also we completed advertising  videos that show the work that we do in the communities. The first video is about helping children and young people in their homeworks through tutoring. The second one is about a microenterprise that we started at the community El Triángulo.
