Project Report | Nov 8, 2019
When we teach them to dream, their destiny changes

By Beatriz Gandara | Project Leader

Your contribution has been transcendental in the education of the young girls; during these 2 years they have been shaping their character and above all now they have a vision to continue studying, because of the better opportunities to which they can have access to.


The accompaniment provided by the project seeks mainly that the girls finish the school year, so that they have the tools and information necessary to develop their life guide, emphasizing the professional aspect. The extracurricular training provided has allowed them to jointly develop the life plan. Within this process, the talks, motivation and experience of the former scholarship holders is a main component to the definition of the girls’ goals and dreams, which will change their destiny.


Such is the case of Kristel, who has been supported with a scholarship since 2015, when she was in the 4th grade of elementary school, being a vulnerable case of drop out because her mother works in the capital city since she was 4 years old. She has been supported by her grandmother at all times. The young girl has virtues and values that make excel: dedication, respect and collaboration in school and in her community.


Thanks to the elaboration of her life plan, she has defined her goals, and the one that she visualizes next is to finish High School, her desire is to study a career in where mathematics is applied as administration or economy. Another of her dreams is to graduate so she can be able to help her grandmother, whom she considers as her mother.


Kristel mentions that thanks to the 5 years she has been supported, she has discovered her potential and above all they have taught her to dream and have goals in her life.


The effects of your contribution are visible in the life of each of the girls, since they are willing to continue studying and continue to reap important successes in their lives.


Without your contribution, young girls like Kristel would have left their studies, however, your donation is giving her the opportunity to change her future!
