Project Report | Jul 26, 2023
Helping Hands Newsletter April to June 2023

By Linda Zarate | Director

OUR BACHILLER, GUINES

Guines, one our former students, joined Helping Hands in 2008 for his last two years of high school. Although he then started out in Veterinary Medicine, he decided he really wanted to learn to drive heavy road construction equipment. He was lucky to find a job and training in this field and has worked all over the country building roads. Heis now working as the project supervisor near Ixiamas in the Bolivian tropics.  Guines is married and has a four-year-old daughter.  Congratulations Guines!!!

We appreciate so very much your continued support for our students as they work toward realizing their dreams of having an education and becoming positive, productive members of their communities. You are an important part of their success.  
 
Donations are always so welcome to keep our students in school.  You can click on the button below:
 
           
OUR VISITORS FROM CALIFORNIA
The ENVOYS travel agency brought a group of students from California to visit Bolivia.  We were lucky to have them visit Helping Hands as part of a cultural exchange. They performed a modern dance and our students performed a skit to illustrate “irpaqa”, the Andean custom of asking for a lady’s hand in marriage. We finished off the afternoon with folkloric dances and a Bolivian tea with api and pasteles (a hot corn drink and cheese empanadas). We look forward to another visit soon. 

THIS TRIMESTER GRADUATES

Lizeth graduated as a “TécnicoSuperior” in Education Sciences from the Universidad Mayor de San Andrés. Because she was an outstanding student with excellent grades, she will also graduate with a “Licenciatura”, or a Bachillers degree, in September. Well done Lizeth!!

Gustavo has now graduated as a Técnico Superior in Entrepreneurship with a Business Development specialty at the Catholic University. Gustavo also studied English at the same time and so is well prepared to look for a job.  Congratulations, Gustavo!!

PRE-GRADUATION CEREMONY

Betza on the far left, is one of our high school students from Sorata who is in her last year of high school and will graduate in December. In May, she had her "Toma de nombre" (pre-graduation ceremony).

 Juan also had his pre-graduation ceremony in his highs chool in June and will have a formal graduation ceremony at the end of the year in December.  Congratulations to you both!!

OUR STUDENTS IN THEIR PRACTICAL STUDIES

Each June, our students send pictures of themselves in their practical studies.  Our 61 girls and 31 boys cover a very wide variety of programmes from Surgical Instrumentalist to Education, Hair Dressing, Veterinary Medicine, Automobile Mechanics and much more. Most of our students are now on awell-deserved month of vacation.

OUR VOLUNTEERS

In the month of May, our students volunteer.  They visited the elderly,tutored younger students, donated blood, cleaned up local parks, handed out food and clothing, and much more. With these activities we encourage our students to have a positive impact on their communities, learn about empathy, gain new perspectives on many issues and strengthen their self-esteem by helping others.

APRIL

In the month of April, our former Helping Hands students and our visitor Lara from the Netherlands gave us a workshop on degree modalities in the universities. They shared important information and valuable experiences with our current technical and university students. It was nice to see them again, now working in what they studied successfully, and know that we can count on them to encourage our new students.

MAY

In the month of May, the Psychologists Viviana and Yami gave us a workshop, "Strengthen the communication between mothers and their children with love".  Our mothers and children were given some important tools to learn about the importance of effective communication within the family to create a healthy relationship with one another. We also took the opportunity to celebrate Bolivian Mothers’ Day.

JUNE

Last month, our workshop was led by aprofessor, Vania,  from the state universities.  The topic was “Academic Composition” and the goal was to strengthen the students’ writing skills and improve their performance on written assignments.
