We met Kevin on a humanitarian mission to El Salvador in 2020, and he was only 16. His mother had died and left him with 3 siblings to support. It was great to visit Gente Aydando Gente's headquarters and see Kevin in the cooking class.
We were able to fund Kevin with your generous donations and now we are going for 10 more students with the launch of a Peer to Peer fundraising program That will enable all of you to get even more involved.
16 students have already graduated and it has changed their lives to have a skill to get jobs in local restaurants
Everybody that has given anything to make this happen has provided an opportunity that only a few could have considered in their lifetime. An 85% of participants in the program are part of the informal sector where they used to sell things without any type of job and income security.
They are now going to be able to provide for their families in a way they had never imagined. Thank you for making their future and their families future a better one.
