Congratulating the VI CAPTA Graduates

Dear friends,

As you remember from our last report, we saw our VI CAPTA group make their way to the International Hotel School for an intense housekeeping and customer service training.  Fundacion Calicanto is now proudly celebrating the sixth CAPTA graduation this year!

Join me in congratulating these women for their commitment and hard work through these 7 weeks of intense vocational training; we have seen them grown into independent, confident women ready to face the world and we are
all very proud of them. 

By the time they graduated, 15 of 22 women had employment possibilities lined up and the remainder had interviews lined up from hotels and restaurants seeking out our CAPTA women. This has been an incredible accomplishment which we could not have done without you! On behalf of our CAPTA graduates and Fundacion Calicanto: thank you for all you have done this year, your support has been a tremendous push for the women and the program; we hope you continue to help us improve the lives of women for years to come.

Happy Holidays!
