Sharing Joy this Holiday Season

Dear Friends,

As this year comes to a close we would like to share with you the joy of having more than 400 Cimientos scholarship recipients graduate from high school and begin their participation in our Graduates Network.

This has been a year of many achievements and concrete results in our efforts to help program graduates find employment and/or further their studies.

We bid farewell with the hope that the next year will find us together once again, working to improve opportunities for underprivileged youth in Argentina.  We would like to take this opportunity to share the words of Emilse, a recent graduate who, next year, will receive her degree as a Surgical Technician:

“When I began high school in 2005 I was selected along with others for a scholarship issued by Cimientos.  The mentor that I had was very supportive, always listening and giving me advice.  We shared many individual meetings as well as group meetings with other students where we could all support each other.

During those 3 years the scholarship helped me a great deal. I was able to buy school supplies, books, clothes, and shoes.

When I finished high school, the Cimientos Graduates Network gave me the opportunity to take a training course and helped me apply for a university scholarship.  I am now finishing my second year of university thanks to the support and mentoring that I receive every month.  I cannot express how grateful I am to the Cimientos Graduates Network and the foundation that now provides me with a scholarship.

Thanks to all of you, in one year I will graduate with a degree in something I like; but even more importantly, I will enjoy the results of refusing to give up, of rising to the challenge no matter the odds.

Simply, THANK YOU!”

Thank you for giving Emilse the chance to escape poverty and have a better future.

Happy Holidays!

The Graduates Network

 

Queridos amigos:

Para cerrar el año, queríamos compartir con ustedes la alegría de tener más de 400 jóvenes que acaban de finalizar la cursada del secundario y podrán participar de nuestra Red de Egresados.

Este fue un año de muchos logros y resultados en nuestro trabajo por favorecer la inserción laboral y educativa de nuestros egresados…

Nos despedimos, deseando que el próximo año nos encuentre juntos para seguir trabajando por los jóvenes de bajos recursos socioeconómicos de la Argentina y aprovechamos para compartir unas líneas que escribió Emilse, una de las egresadas que el próximo año recibirá su título como Instrumentadora Quirúrgica.

“Cuando comencé el colegio secundario en el año 2005 fui seleccionada junto a otros para una beca otorgada por la Fundación Cimientos.

La tutora que tuve fue un gran apoyo para mí, siempre me escuchaba y me aconsejaba. Compartimos muchos encuentros individuales y grupales con otros chicos donde nos ayudábamos entre todos.

Esos 3 años que recibí la beca me ayudaron mucho. Pude comprar los materiales para estudiar, los libros, la vestimenta y el calzado.

Cuando terminé el secundario la Red de Egresados de Cimientos me dio la oportunidad de realizar el curso de capacitación y me ayudó a gestionar una beca universitaria. Hoy estoy terminando de cursar 2º año gracias a al apoyo y acompañamiento que recibo  todos los meses y estoy más que agradecida con la Red de Egresados de Cimientos y con la Fundación que hoy me otorga la beca.

Gracias a todos ellos en un año me voy a poder recibir de lo que me gusta pero, más que nada, voy a disfrutar los resultados de no haber bajado los brazos y seguir a pesar todo.

¡Simplemente GRACIAS!”

Gracias por darle la oportunidad a Emilse a salir de la pobreza y tener un futuro mejor.

Felices Fiestas para todos,

La Red de Egresados
