Cimientos youth with Barack and Michelle Obama

Meeting Michelle Obama
Meeting Michelle Obama

Dear friends,

On 23rd March, Cimientos was invited to attend to 2 events organized by the U.S.A Embassy, due to Barack and Michelle Obama´s visit to Argentina.

In the morning, we went with 5 girls of 16 years old to meet Michelle Obama. She gave out an inspirational speech in front of women students and teachers from 16 schools of Buenos Aires. She wanted all the attendees to convert themselves in agents of change, and to follow the example of all those brave women who lived in our country. Our girls spent an unforgettable moment next to Michelle.

In the afternoon we went with 7 youth between 18 and 23 years old to meet Barack Obama, who gave another great speech and spent a whole hour answering questions of hundreds of youth who attended this meeting.

Everyone was really glad to have been invited to these events, it was their first time near a politician so it was incredible for them to meet such important people. 

Thanks for making it possible for low income Argentine youth get opportunities as this one and to get their first jobs and foster their education!

Best regards,

María

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Dear friends,

This year is coming to an end and we have plenty of things to give thanks for... We will share our annual results in our next report because we are still working hard until the last minute to help more youth find their first job... This report is to thank every one of you because we were able to offer many opportunities to low income youth and this was possible thanks to your donations.

December is a really special month to us because school classes finish in Argentina so it´s a great month to celebrate the graduation of new children. This year we had almost 400 youth that finish high school and many of them got excellent grades and were the best pupils of their whole class!!!!!

December is also a special month because all over the world people celebrate Christmas and New Year and like to give special presents to their beloved ones. Please consider giving a gift card of our project to your family and friends. This can make a huge difference to our project, increasing our impact in low-income youth lives!

On this report we want to share with you a picture of part of Cimientos´ team. We took it specially for you on our last year toast, where we all wished to keep up the hard work we´ve been doing for the last 18 years in our beloved Argentina.

Happy Holidays and best regards,

María
