Dear Friends,

March has been an exciting month for us here at Cimientos, as classes have started back up and Argentine students that have the means to attend have headed back to school. One of these students is Jennifer, a college sophomore who was granted a scholarship to attend thanks to Cimientos’ support. Jennifer shares her inspirational story of personal empowerment, achievement and how Cimientos helped her surmount formidable barriers with us below.

In a month as important as March in Argentina, when so many kids are struggling to stay in school due to economic hardship, we are reminded of the importance of giving more students like Jennifer the chance to go to school, get a good education and escape poverty. By giving us your continued support by donating and spreading the word to your friends and family that also believe, like us, that education can change the world, you have the opportunity to give the gift of opportunity to those that need it most.

If you donate to low-income youth in Argentina TODAY (Wednesday, March 16th), Global Giving will match your donation by 30%, increasing your impact!

Thank you for helping make back to school an exciting and enriching time for anyone who wants to keep learning!

Jennifer´s Story

“Thanks Cimientos!! Thanks to this wonderful NGO I got to go to high school…Not letting Cimientos down and not giving up on myself was a huge challenge. I received a scholarship for 5 whole years though to make it happen!!

Thanks to you, I now have the possibility of studying at a great university. I want to let you know that I love the place where I study and I´m trying to keep up with it. I’m studying Business Administration at the UADE University and I hope I’ll do really well! I´m gonna keep making an effort, studying and thanking Cimientos for all it did, does and will keep doing for me!!

Cimientos is one of the best things in life that can happen to you…if you take advantage of it!! Thanks Cimientos and thanks to its donors for making my life a life with bigger and better ambitions!!” - Jennifer

 ¡Alumnos vuelven a la escuela!

 Queridos amigos:

En marzo, los jóvenes argentinos comenzaron sus clases, tanto en la escuela como en la universidad. Necesitamos continuar recibiendo su apoyo para lograr que más jóvenes como Jennifer accedan a una educación de calidad y así puedan escapar de la pobreza.

¡Si hoy (miércoles 16 de marzo) haces una donación a jóvenes con bajos recursos económicos, Global Giving donará un 30% adicional y tu impacto será mayor!

Gracias por tu apoyo!

Testimonio de Jennifer

“¡¡GRACIAS CIMIENTOS!! Gracias a esta hermosa fundación yo pude estudiar toda mi secundaria con un gran incentivo....No decepcionarlos ni decepcionarme a mi misma... ¡¡Fui becada durante 5 años!!

Gracias a ustedes, yo hoy tengo la posibilidad de estudiar en una gran universidad. Quiero contarles que me encanta el lugar en el que estudio y estoy tratando de adaptarme al ritmo universitario. ¡Estoy estudiando Administración de Empresas en la Universidad Argentina de la Empresa (UADE) y espero que me vaya muy bien! ¡¡VOY A SEGUIR ESFORZÁNDOME, ESTUDIANDO Y AGRADECIENDO A CIMIENTOS POR TODO LO QUE HA HECHO, HACE Y SEGUIRÁ HACIENDO POR MI!!


- Jennifer
