On Monday June 27th the CAPTA May-June Group graduated in a beautiful ceremony at the Holiday Inn Hotel where the Panama International Hotel School is located.

It was a very special act, that began with each graduate presenting to the public her goals for the next five years.  To see this women focused, full of hope, and wishing to work hard to achieve their dreams was the best reward for every member of Fundacion Calicanto's team and all their instructors and teachers.

They also presented a socio-drama, in which they shared with the public their realities at home, and what it takes them to be able to commit and enroll in the CAPTA course.

Xiomara Gonzalez, spoke in behalf of all the students, and thanked Fundacion Calicanto's donors and friends for their support and for believing in them.

Each participant received two certificates: one for the Fundamental Cycle and the other for the Vocational Training, which were presented by Hildegard Vasquez, Fundacion Calicanto's Executive President and Roberto Jean Francois and Johnny Luna representing the Hotel School.
