Cimientos XIV Annual Fundraising dinner 2014

Dear all,

My name is Catalina, I have recently joined Graduates Network team, replacing Josefina. I am very happy to be part of this team and work to support teenagers who have finished high school to broaden their educational and labor opportunities.

Through education, we construct a better future for youth of our country and develop a fairer and more equal Argentina.

Financial support is very important to achieve our goals.

Next 19th March,  we have Cimientos XV Annual Fundraising dinner. This year the motto is “We are education”. It invites people to think about the impact of their education in their lives. Education is a key factor to promote changes in our society and to decide our future.

It is the most important event we conduct in the year, where we present our organization and look forward to receiving donations which will be assigned to Cimientos’ programs.

60 organizations and 500 people, will be participating in this event on Thursday. Among them, business people, authorities, diplomats, faculty, politicians and journalists,

Also, graduated students will be participating as volunteers to collaborate with the organization and be in contact with the guests.

We invite you to be part of this Fundraising event and hope we can count with your support to continue helping Argentine youth building a better future.

If you donate on Wednesday, March 18th from 9:00 EDT to 23:59 EDT GlobalGiving will match you donation up to $1,000 at 30%, per donor per Project. There is $60,000 available in matching.

Celebrating the graduation of 400 new youth!!

Celebrating together
Celebrating together

Dear friends,

Last Wednesday (12/17) we held the last Graduates meeting of the year with 35 low- income youth. December is a really special month to us because school classes finish in Argentina to then start holidays so it´s a great month to celebrate the graduation of new children. This year we had more than 400 youth that finish high school and many of them got excellent grades and were the best pupils of their whole class!!!!!

On the morning, we invited 8 volunteers who gave incredible "TED talks" to the new graduates, sharing their stories and also useful advice to achieve their goals. 

After lunch, we organized a raffle with prices donated by different firms and all of them were able to win something so they were thrilled. On the afternoon, each of them participated in different workshops to help them choose what to keep on studying after high school or how to start looking for a job.

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!

Happy Holidays and best regards,

María

Meeting with our future graduates 2014

Last July 23, we invited Cimientos pupils, who graduate from school this year with our sholarship for a special lunch at our office. Taking advantage of their winter holidays, we held this event to get to know them and welcome them to our Graduates Network.

52 students participated! They came from many places of Buenos Aires: Merlo, Soldati, Pte. Perón, Lugano, Longchamps, Barracas, Ensenada Laferrere and Florencio Varela. Some of them had to travel more than 2 hours to get to our office.

All of them received “Guias del Estudiante” which are guides donated by an Argentine editorial than contain information of every private and public university. We also gave them useful information about university scholarships available for those who want to continue studying next year but can´t afford it.

Ater lunch, some of them stayed for a vocational guidance workshop delievered by a psichologist  from the University of Barceló, in order to make them think about their future.

We hope to keep on counting on your support to help argentine youth achieve higher education and obtain jobs so that they can escape poverty.

Best regards,

María and Josefina (Graduates Network team)
