Thank you! Gracias! From all at Para Adelante

We at Para Adelante are very excited and grateful to be an organization supported by GlobalGiving and all its supporters. We would like to thank everyone who has supported and those who continue to support us and the women.

As you know, one of our students, Dolores, recently graduated with a degree in social works. Being a single mom, who also takes care of her own mother, made her journey to earn her degree a challenging one. Due to her hard work and perseverance, she succeeded and is now working in an internship. She will pursue her career in Social Work and help others who have had difficult starts in life. We are so proud of the progress she has made. She is a true ambassador for Para Adelante! 

Angelica (pictured above), who is pursuing a degree in psychology, is making great strides in her studies. When she began her educational journey, she was not sure if she would be able to succeed, but she is doing very well and is getting more confident each semester. We see a very successful future for her as she is planning to help those in need of emotional and mental support.

Our students continue to tell us how grateful they are the organization and all the donors who help provide this opportunity for them to better their lives and those of their families and communities. These women continue to embody the Para Adelante spirit and continue to inspire us. With that inspiration, we are still staying busy building our online store where we sell a variety of beautiful, one of kind accessories handmade by women in Guatemala with 100% of the net profits going to fund the scholarships. These items can be found on our website (http://paraadelante.org/shop/) with more inventory to be posted and we hope to launch a Shopify store to reach even more people and fund more scholarships to help more women and their families.

You can find more updates on all the women by following our social media pages below.
