VISIONAR supporters have reasons to be proud. All five students we are sponsoring are making progress toward their college degrees. They are driven, smart, hard working, and their efforts are paying off. VISIONAR is providing these young Argentines with the opportunity to study. In return, VISIONAR asks for their serious commitment to success. VISIONAR requires a minimum GPA of 7.00, which is equivalent to a “B” in the American grading system, and at least 4 hours of community service per month. VISIONAR is managed seamlessly by a local non-profit organization, Atrapasueños, run by Miss Evelina Feraudo. Atrapasueños board member Graciela Asis is instrumental in the success of VISIONAR in Argentina. Graciela is the on-site manager and mentor to the students. VISIONAR is very thankful to Graciela and Evelina for joining us in making this dream come true.
Please read the attached newsletter for further details on the student's progress!
