New graduation of 30 participants

Celebrating with their degrees
Celebrating with their degrees

Dear friends,

We want to share with you excellent news ... On June 15, 30 young people completed an administrative assistant course that we offered together with KPMG firm. During 3 months these low income youth had classes in charge of more than 15 voluntary employees of the firm and participated in workshops of soft skills and job placement by Cimientos.

None of the young people left the course. Those who organize these kind of activities know this is an incredible result.

During the next months, they will have a tutor who will help them in their job search so that they can get the job they so desire. We hope to count on your support to do another course of these in September.

Finally, we want to share the words that Federico, one of the graduates, told us in the graduation day: "If I could repeat some moments of my life, this would undoubtedly be one of them".

Thank you for making our work possible,

María

Celebrating Cimientos 20th anniversary with Davids story

Meet David at his work
Meet David at his work

Dear friends,

On October 13th, Cimientos celebrated it´s 20th anniversary. We are so happy to know we´ve been changing thousands of low income youths and families through education and employment opportunities during all these years.

 On this occasion, we want to share with you the story of David, an 18 year old boy who lives in a vulnerable neighborhood of the City of Buenos Aires. When he was about to finish high school, David listened to a talk we gave at his school about the needs of the current job market, to invite young people to take an administrative assistant and soft skills course that would allow them to access quality jobs.

 David did not hesitate a second. So far he had only had sporadic and precarious jobs as a bricklayer. He took the course that we dictated together with KPMG and J.P. Morgan and a week before receiving his diploma, he got a job as a receptionist at DuPont.

 It´s been 5 months since he started working. He has an excellent salary, health insurance, retirement contributions, he is working and training in a company that is also very satisfied with his performance. He never imagined that a few months after finishing high school and taking our course he would be this good.

Thanksgiving is approaching and we really like the habit in the USA of thinking and sharing what they are thankful for ... In Cimientos, we are grateful to have completed 20 years of hard work to change stories like David's and we appreciate the support of all our donors who made and make our work possible. 

We count on your support to continue working for equal educational opportunities.

Best regards,

María
