Project Report | Dec 12, 2022
I was able to boost my business.

By Carlos Escalante | Communications Specialist

Dear Friends, 

We are coming to the end of a great year. Thank you for your valuable support throughout this time. In 2022, we have worked to provide educational and economic opportunities to migrants and refugees living in the Americas. Your commitment to our cause has allowed us to achieve great results. 

As you might know, Venezuela is experiencing one of the most significant socio-economic and humanitarian crises in modern history. This situation has forced hundreds of Venezuelans to seek better opportunities overseas. Therefore, our POETA centers lend these people a hand in reintegrating them into society. Our centers provide valuable skills, such as entrepreneurial and digital competencies, to empower hundreds of Venezuelan migrants to create a better future in their new social realities. 

As an appropriate closing to this year, we would like to share the story of Ana, a Venezuelan mother who has successfully overcome adversity. 

Ana and her family came to Colombia from Barquisimeto, hoping to start a new life. At first, she says it was challenging to get a job due to the restrictions during the pandemic. However, Ana always had a positive attitude. When she was presented with the opportunity to learn about the use of technology in one of our POETA centers, she jumped at the chance. Today, thanks to the knowledge she acquired in our training courses, she has managed to open her bakery,Antijotos de Anita.Ana has digitized her business and has more than 2,300 followers on her social media. 

Once again, thank YOUvery much. We look forward to counting on your support and commitment for a long time to come!
