Two different 12th grade classrooms of approximately 30 students each attended to a professional orientation program that incluced not only finance contents but also an illustrated visit to a printing company where they were taken through all the processes embedded in the printing industry production and operations.  Although some of these students had a clear vision of their future career, these youngsters were guided and supported in alll of their doubts and clarifications needed for them to build their future in the most appropiated way.


Their expectations were not only fulfilled by the Printing company General Manager, the administration Manager and the print operation process coordinator, but they found the inspiration needed to persist on their grades to obtain a high shool degree with the Graphic industry knowledge needed to opt for as a trainee within any company similar to the one visited.


For us this is a meaningful experience, one more step for these kids to pursue on their objective.  Providing them with the knowledge tools to pursuing on their professional objective make us feel rewarded, because we will count on 60 more professionals to recover the country, when most of the professionals are leaving it looking forward for better opportunities in a country full of problems which needs young and prepared people to place it in the way for development.


Many thanks to all our donors who have believed in our project. Counting on you make us believe there is hope in our youngsters population, to continue to fight for their purpose.

We have good news!. After previous reports when we were working on planning our financial education interventions we have achieved a total of 160 youngsters who received Contents of our programs Economics for succes, Be entrepreneur, Job Shadow and Personal Finance in local and remote locations within the country. 

Economics for success reached 91 students at four different Municipalities, three of them in the Caracas metropolitan area and the other iat the Salesian Ladies Chinita Center, located in the San Francisco Municipality, Zulia State. Also in Caracas, we have taken two groups for a total of 32 students to live the experience of and in-hands operation of a graphic industry, were they not only covered their doubts on how to financially organized a company but also understood the steps aligned to their possible career. It resulted on a very inspiring experience which would continue to other industries.

In the case of Personal Finance we have prepared a foro chat version of our traditional presential or hybrid programs for a remote 20 youngsters population who go sometimes to school -when their work permits it- to receive the contents on a asyncronous way, considering the lack of digital signal in the region impacted except for some smart phone owners which received the program for it to be shared among some of them.

A successful quarter by all means. These are the results from structuring the project and completing the objective derived from our donors contributions for a long period.  We are grateful and satisfied with so many young people who will now understand how to manage their financial growth ith the right tools forecasting future needs.

Please accept our gratitude and do not doubt on contacting our organization to know much more of our initiatives, and also, please send these good news with your love ones to share the satisfaction of your generous contribution to make this world better.


Warm regards,

We are excited to initiate the route to complete our promise. As reported in previous opportunities, we have finally began the education process to provide 12 young students with the tools to build a sound and organized financial education path to their success.

We have reached an alliance with the La Chinita School, managed by the Salesians ladies, that is located in Maracaibo, the capital city of the Zulia's State, the one located in the West Coast are, lilmiting with Colombia. An interesting number of students attend this school for their secundary education classes on a daily basis. They come from low income households, some of them from indigenous ethnicities while their majority do not count on an intelligent device to receive on line classes. However, the school bet for them to participate in our training programs.

Students are coming back to school while actions to enhance their integration to the classrooms have varied in days of presence at school and days of remote connection. It is important to highlight that  remote connection has been difficult in our country showing a weak internet structure and a lack of intelligent tools at national level. On the other hand for most of students do not count with internet service nor an electronic device. In the few cases they participate with their parents phones and data as we fight for space to deliver our contents considering that for them data means prepaid money.

Nonetheless a dozen of students have initiated classes on Economic for Success, a comprehensive program that we are sending online to be acccessed with a code and also downloaded by the local volunteers who are accompanying these young teams along their classes and guiding them in matters related to financial planning, careers selection, innovative thinking and intelligent decisions to strengthen their knowledge and professional future with soft skills that are embedded in the education process.

As we have understood that is possible to maintain this project managing small groups of young people we will focus our procedures in working with the school to consequently repeat this training along the school year in order to reach as many as students as possible before classes finish next June.

These actions had not been possible without our donors support who we thank deeply for their constant and generous spirit. For each $10 given to our cause every person can inspire and push to succeed a young student forever for a better lilfe and better society.

Sincere thanks to all of you!

A year has almost finished with the biggest hope of reaching a greater population of youngsters for them to receive our newly created on line contents. However, these times have been harder for our purpopses, considering of the total youngsters we were planning to reach this year only 10% of the beneficiaries count on intelligent tools or internet infrastructure available to acess our financial education programs.

Nonetheless, we still maintain our expectations of receiving the funds donated by people who believe in these young candidates, who have bet to their success. Sanctions imposed by the local government have impeded to send these. Meanwhile we have developed new contents and for sure we will be able to accomplish an interesting portion of our initial goal once such funds are received to be invested in the programs we will deliver. As school scheduled time for our classes have not already been provided due to continuous cancellations, postpositions and closures -just to name some interventions within the education calendar-  we are prone to believe that once lists have been filtered by those who can attend and those who won't be able to do it, January will the month to reinitiate our classes continuing to complete the project.

I want to thank you and everyone who have believed in our proposal  for your patience and confidence demonstrated along these years. Young people continue to be our focus and although facing major obstacles and lack of tools we will satisfy  expectations of completion as indicated since the beginning of this project.

We wish you all a gorgeous Christmas period. Peace and love for you, your families and acquaintances.. God be with you!

Dear donors, is a pleasure to let you know that we have accomplished more than expected although we have not received any more donations since the beginning of 2020. 

Times have been strong for all NGO's - included ours - along the pandemic period, while some measurements imposed by the local government have extremely affected the way we work preventing to directly reach our beneficiaries. However as our education programs have been converted to on-line ones in a variety of digital platforms, savings have provided the necessary funds to continue with our financial education classes  until the first 2020 quarter, but are already finished so we cannot continue to operate while reaching students has come to be more difficult every day due to the worst internet services in the planet we count on in Venezuela. Not only our students and teachers at schools do not count on funds to buy a computer nor a smart phone, there also is a lack of internet structure in most of the low income areas. Students have been forced to using their parents equipments to afford the available contents.For this to be possible we have not only converted some of these to What's App contents but also have prepared teachers on these for them to support the project implementing classes with these valuable knowledge. BNonetheless, at the end, financial support is needed to continue the job and administrative operation.

Times are not going to change by the moment, but we count on your generosity to continue our work.  We are deeply thankful for the aid received until last year, but require of continuous support for implementation of more updated contents we count on. We are sure you will understand this fact and act upon to help us work.

Wishing you the best!
