Seeking better opportunities

Dear friends,

Thanks to your constant support, we have managed to impact hundreds of Venezuelan migrants across the Americas. This 2021, we continue to expand our efforts to keep summing more beneficiaries.

As the region advances with the vaccination process, we will move to a hybrid format imparting training from both, our POETA Centers, and our virtual platforms and tools. We have come a long way, reflected on the real needs of our region to tailor our programs, and learned best practices to keep enhancing our efforts. Egdelix is a great example of what we have accomplished thanks to our local partners and to you.

Egdelix is a Venezuelan migrant that arrived in Medellin, Colombia in the pursuit of better opportunities. From the first day, Egdelix and her husband, two hard-working people, started working to improve their situation, during that time her husband learned carpentry, and with just one saw, they started their business, the carpentry “La Vencedora”. Thanks to the technical skills learned through our POETA DigiSpark program courses, Egdelix and her husband were able to boost their business in the midst of a pandemic, became known in their locality, and managed to attract more customers with their new website. She told us “now, not only I can meet my goals, but also I can project myself into the future”. For us as The Trust for the Americas, it is very gratifying to hear these words, because everyone can achieve it, it just takes that little push to learn something new to open many new doors.

Moreover, we are looking forward to continuing to increase our numbers through our World Refugee Day campaign, in which we will give special emphasis to stories like Egdelix's and highlight the great need that Venezuelans have to hold access to opportunities such as the POETA DigiSpark training. Thus, we will get more funds and impact more Venezuelans who leave their country due to the sad and unsustainable situation they are going through.

We have great hope in the region and every day our team is more committed to continuing to develop training and mentoring for millions of people who are looking for a second chance in life. Every day, technical skills become more important as the future of work approaches and we have realized that the time to form multi-sector alliances and work for others is now. We must work all together to guarantee an inclusive post-COVID recovery. In this sense, it fills us with joy to be able to continue counting on you because it is because of YOU that all this is possible.

Kind wishes,
