Our plan was to place our 2019 interns in January. We did not reach our funding goal, so have had to put the program on hold. Young women have submitted their applications and are waiting to get started. They want to join the other young women who have successfully completed their first work experiences and are working in their career.
Loyda who interned as a secretary at a school in Panajachel is now working there fulltime and attending the university to become a teacher. Blanca has a position in the restaurant where she interned. Francisca has a position teaching in a village outside her hometown of San Juan Comalapa. Brenda is working at a government health clinic. Juana is putting her training as a bookkeeper to work as a bill collector for a cable company in Santa Clara la Laguna. Rosa and Mishel are working as hospital practical nurses. Silvia is working as a bank clerk. Reina is working as a pre-school teacher in a government program and Leona is working at an accounting firm. These young women all credit the Kateri Intern Program as preparing them to move ahead with jobs in their careers.
We have enough money right now to support one intern. We need to reach our funding goal to move forward. You can help us by adding to your own donation or contacting your friends and family to tell them about the Kateri Intern Program and encourage them to donate. As we say, “Everything is possible with a little help from a FRIEND!”
