Aura Has Reached Her Goal - A Permanent Job

Last week, I got word that Aura had finished her internship and was hired fulltime with the accounting firm!   This is the news that we joyfully hear.  Aura has been working toward this goal since she went back to school, starting at sixth grade at 17 years old.  She has navigated the full six years of secondary education and a year as an intern, faithfully working hard and looking ahead to this day.  She has done her part, but without the support she has received all along the way from all of the Kateri supporters it would have been much more difficult, if not impossible.  She gives a big thanks to all who have been with her,  She believes our motto, "Everything is possible with a little help from a FRIEND!"

As we see the success of the young women in the intern program, we have decided to make it a focus for our work.  Scholarships for secondary education are not as needed as in the past.  We have seen many new scholarships available.   The Kateri intern program is unique and is where we feel we can make the greatest impact.  This year, in addition to Aura, we have four more young women in the program and will be adding five more in April.  They are all working hard with the same goal as Aura-a permanent job!

Of the 25 young women who have participated in the intern program since its small beginning in 2004, over 75% have gone on to find employment  You can celebrate with these young women who have reached their goal.
