 Puerta Abierta, fortunately is now fully in a circular mode, as the older girls finish their cycle, after graduating from college, and leaving the house to pursue their life projects, while younger girls arrive and start their own structured and programmed cycle within the house.  Certainly in their own personality and style.

 We now have two young girls, each with their overwhelming personal backgrounds, but happily, very enthused of becoming part of this loving family.

 Alison, 16-years old, is quiet, very much wanting to learn new things, but with some loopholes in her academic history, perhaps due to lack of follow-up at her previous home, and her emotional stability.   She likes programming and video games.  Certainly something very interesting, challenging and with a bright future.

We hope to support her in this new phase of her life and help her in her emotional stability and schooling pursuits.

 Ximena, 17 years old, is in the final phase of high-school.  Apparently, she is interested in continuing college studying accounting, although we can see some challenges related to her cognitive development, but that with discipline and mentorship  should be overcome.

 Every time new girls arrive we face new challenges, arising from their adaptation to the new rules, new environment and most of all, their acceptance by the other girls.  We have seen however, that these new girls have made a special effort in adapting, relating to and being accepted in the family.   Fortunately, we now see that all parties involved, new arrivals and former members, all make a concerted effort to adapt, relate and continue on in harmony.

All want to be accepted, respected, cherished and loved.

 As mentors to them, we need to be firm in enforcing the house rules, but always with respect and most of all, with warm and loving support while adapting and eventually growing up.

 Our goal is to grow strong, respected, loved and loving women.

Can you magine not having a family?

Today we are going to share with you the story of 2 of our girls, they lived by themselves as their mother was never present, 2 years ago when they were 14 and 15 years old they walked out and looked for help. They found Puerta Abierta as DIF ( Mexican government agency that protects children ) referred them to us.

Brisa the eldest and Fátima had never understood what having a family meant, they thought that a tiny mistake could mean that they would have the risk of not being part of the family. Now they know that families give second, third or more opportunities and as they learn to respect, follow the rules they will be closer to other members of the family.

Thanks to your generosity they are enrolled in university and they will become responsible, self-sufficient and independent. Please take a moment to visit today that we celebrate #GivingTuesday our project and keep helping them and the rest of our girls.

Fati as we call her is a sweet young woman that is beginning her degree in Psychology because she wants to become the best neuropsychologist and help people to be well in mind and heart. Fati has gone the extra mile to get wher she is now, she keeps doing her best effort in her studies.

Brisa is doing a degree in Communications and marketing, she loves to be part of all the new social media communications trends. They are loved by the rest of the girls and now they love having Puerta Abierta as a family.

A Fati and Brisa we have 4 more girls in University, they are doing good! Karla is now in her 6 months program that we have for the girls that have finished university so they can empower to become independent. And 2 young women that now are independent but will always be part of this family.

From the bottom of the heart  thank you!

Dear Donor

There is nothing more profitable than being good. We want to thank you for your support to our project in Puerta Abierta, consolidating efforts in childhood is essential to break cycles and provide a better future.

With your support you have helped us to change the destiny of Fátima who was at risk by attending her integrally to generate skills and abilities that allow her to achieve an independent life as professional woman.

We are excited to tell you that this school year, Fatima started her university studies; we are very proud of her, because every day she gives her best at school and at home.

Fatima is studying Psychology and her commitment to be an independent woman is very big, she loves learning new things, she recently joined "Türish", which means door in German, this is a social business that is part of Puerta Abierta, with these steps she starts her process of independence.

Fatima enjoys reading and talking to new people, always taking the best from people to grow in her human capital.

We are thankful for your support,

Happy as I had never been! Kim
Happy as I had never been! Kim

Dear Donor,

Hi, My name is Kim, I am from Queretaro City and I used to live on the street selling chewing gum until I was taken to Puerta Abierta´s home.. 

I arrived July the 15th 2021 being 10 years. Two weeks after was my birthday, they celebrated me, I had a birthday cake, it was chocolate and all the girls at home had a slice with me. Now I feel part of this family, they have opened their hearts to me and I feel secure and loved. Lucy and Susan take care of us.

As I had never gone to school it was very difficult to find one for me, I was too old to be in 1st grade. They talked with  a Montessori school that allowed me to be in their 1st to 3rd grade group and they have been very kind and patient. I am doing a lot of work and now I can read and write, my teacher tells me that my handwriting is beautiful. But what I like more is math, I am very good at it.

As I have done so much progress, I am going to be in 5th grade next year. I love my school, my teachers and my friends. 

I am very exited to be telling you this, I have a loving family now and a good school so I am happy and I will do my best always at home with my chores and at school with my homework.

Today,  please donate to Puerta Abierta so we can keep up and  more girls like me can have an education and a loving family.

Today  your donation will be matched until funds are over( terms adn conditions at the bottom), so do it now! This is the link:

There is still time to make the dreams of the girls of Puerta Abierta come true, WE'RE COUNTING WITH YOU!

PD , Guess what I want to be when I grow old? No, not an architect, not an engineer and not a designer! I want to be a Math teacher  so more girls enjoy math as I do!

Bye for now, 

Kim

A success case 

Time flies and the moment comes when our girls get to the goals set by Puerta Abierta when they finish their university degree, get a job to be economically independent and start and independent life outside the PA home.

This is the case with Ana Gaby, our second university graduate. She has just obtained a BSc of Psychology, with Labor as its major.  She made her professional internship at a prestigious local company, where due to her dedication, was later hired. At which time she decides to become independent and leaves the house.

We have mixed feelings, happiness as seeing her planning this step, as she is responsible, organized, and mature, while on the other hand feeling sad to see her go.

At work, she has established a good reputation, which in turn motivates her to learn more and become more involved both socially and professionally.  We are proud of her achievements and happy to talk to her when she visits her sisters and tutors at the house. We feel happy to see her enjoy this environment where she can always find love and support when necessary.  Come home where she is loved and respected, and enjoy memories and dreams with her family.   

 

Ana Gaby, we are so proud of you!  Proud of your firm and decisive character, as well as your responsibility and care towards your new life, which certainly will lead you to face new challenges and achieve further successes. We feel proud as tutors, sisters and friends of having been part of your story.

Ana Gaby, we wish happiness and succes!!

Ana Gaby
