Darli Junior high graduate
The new term started in January. Most of the Kateri students will be in high school this year. The students were excited to renew their friendships with their Kateri friends at the first meeting in February. Margarita and Yessica are in 8th grade. They will finish junior high in 2019. Darli finished 8th grade in 2018. There the curriculum was a general study including reading and writing in Spanish, mathematics and practical problem solving, social studies, and cultural awareness. She now joins Carmen, Gloria, Ingrid, Mayra, Milvia, and Alicia in high school. The high school curriculum is based on their choice of career. Carmen is especially excited because she will graduate in October this year as a trained bookkeeper.
The scholarships your support provides assist families with tuition, purchase of books and school supplies, uniforms and shoes for school attendance. Having a student in school full time means that the families not only have these extra expenses, but they lose the earning power of one member of their family.
Thanks to Luke Alessandroni’s Spanish classes at Lick Wilmerding High School in San Francisco, CA. we are able to send translations of monthly letters to their sponsors. We are tremendously grateful to these volunteer translators.
Thank you for the following feedback from a GlobalGiving Sponsor 2019: "It has been a pleasure to see the young women in this program move on to work in their profession. A small but powerful force. Getting monthly reports from these young women is a validation that my money is leading to something better for them.
