During the year 2018 in the department of Retalhuleu, the Ministry of Education of Guatemala registered 19,149 students enrolled in the high school cycle, of which an average of 6% dropped out of the training process, which means that many people do not prioritize or do not have the resources to complete their academic preparation. For this reason, thanks to the support and your donation, 100% of the girls who benefit from a scholarship have finished their education without difficulties, guaranteeing the continuity of their training and generating better opportunities for their lives.
Your contribution in this second consecutive year, has given the opportunity to each of the girls who received a scholarship to acquire their educational supplies and above all, to continue to set goals for their future lives. Now they are moving forward with the development of their life guide focusing on the professional aspect, which will be presented at the end of 9th grade.
This time we want to emphasize on Evelyn and Marcelina, their commitment, contribution, academic performance and, above all, the solidarity with their classmates of this two young women with scholarships. They have several qualities and skills, that have helped them to be the best in their class and, especially, the leadership and empowerment they provide to other young women to continue their studies.
They comment that “being a scholarship holder has given us the reassurance of having better opportunities when we grow up, above all it has allowed us to develop other life skills”.
They also highlight the good performance of Arleth, who wishes to finish her high school degree and continue a career that will allow her to fulfill herself professionally and be able to contribute to her family.
“Thank you for being part of the change in the education of young girls in the department of Retalhuleu”.
