Helping Hands Newsletter February - March 2021

NEWS

This year we welcomed 110 students, 30 of them are new. We wish them all a very successful upcoming year! Check out our 2021 students

ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGES

Our Program Director Pamela left Helping Hands in mid-February for family reasons. We are very grateful to her for all the work she did which has contributed to our organization having legal and administrative requirements that will allow Helping Hands to expand.

THANK YOU PAMELA!

WE WISH YOU ALL THE BEST IN YOUR NEW ADVENTURE

And now we welcome our new Program Director Vierca Mejía who is very enthusiastic to continue the work that Pamela started. We will strive to overcome the new challenges and achieve new goals for the benefit of all of our students.

OUR STUDENTS

There is no greater joy than seeing the positive results of our work, the sponsors’ commitments and our students’ efforts.

GILDA

Gilda is a student of Dentistry at the Public University UMSA.  She completed her rural internship in Dentistry in the town of Hilata from February until the end of March. Now she will begin her urban internship for 3 months to finish her studies and begin the process of graduation. Congratulations Gilda, you are just a step away from your degree and being able to contribute your skills to society.

REYNA VANESSA

Reyna Vanessa is studying Public Accounting at the UNICEN and will complete her coursework in June of this year. She will then begin the graduation process which will take another six months. Before joining Helping Hands, Vanessa enrolled in sewing classes hoping to be able to cover some of her living expenses and save money for her graduation by taking in sewing. She turned out to be quite the entrepreneur and now has a small business of her own.  

Go for it, Vanessa, we need enterprising people who can create jobs. We are sure you will do very well.

It is the beginning of the school year again and Helping Hands has many new students who need sponsors. If you would like to sponsors a student or just help out with a one-time donation, please visit OUR SPONSORSHIP PAGE or visit us at this link   https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/education-for-at-risk-bolivian-girls/   or    https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/help-bolivian-youth-access-higher-education/ 

This new year 2021, so many young people are hoping for the opportunity of an education which allows them to achieve their dreams. We wish we could help everyone, but because of our limited resources we must limit our acceptances. Helping Hands requires a lengthy application form to be filled out and a home visit (virtual this year) for all applicants. So far we have accepted 30 new students for 2021. We welcome this great group of dreamers, who put all their effort into achieving their goals.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES DISTRIBUTION

In March we distributed school supplies to all of our elementary and high school students. They were most grateful to have the materials required by their schools so they can keep up with their studies. Schools in Bolivia do not provide books and materials for the students making it difficult for poorer families to keep their children in school.

WORKSHOPS

In February, we held our first online workshop of the year with all of our students. This welcoming workshop was also informative. Given by our Helping Hands team, we talked about the monthly requirements, scholarship opportunities, dates for coming workshops and much more.

Considering the importance of our students’ health, in March our workshop was directed by a Dentist, Doctor Gisela, a former Helping Hands student. Dr. Gisela gave us a very informative workshop on Dental Care, and she also explained how to choose a suitable toothpaste and toothbrush and how to use them correctly. Thank you Dr. Gisela!!
