No more excuses! Maria wants to learn more

With your help, single mothers from low income communities can access technology and high quality education. After students, mothers are the second group attending the RIA or Learning and Innovation Network. Here's Marías story:

"My name is Maria Felix Ocampo Noverón. I'm 38 years old. 

We started the course three weeks ago with teacher Esmeralda. The truth is I learn something new every day, in each class. My life has changed since I started the course, I am excited and want to learn more. I started coming because a friend told me she was studying computing and she told me where. I didn't know it was a Foundation and I was amazed because my excuse was always that I didn't have any money, but I had never looked for a place like the RIA. 

I like the RIA: everyone can access courses to learn new skills, how to find a job, how to do homework or just to update with new technologies. The school is very nice, their facilities are modern and it has a good vibe.

My daughter also comes to a Computer course. 
The teacher is excellent, because she's very patient.

I would like to know more about computers and then study English. I hope I can start soon". 

Help mothers like María change their lives and teach their children to leave excuses behind and work for a brighter future. Thank you for your donation.
