“I pledge to believe in myself and fight for what I want”
Rosa is a 16 year old girl who lives in Cantón Ayutia, in the department of Retalhuleu. She is studying 9th grade of High School.
Rosa is a cheerful, friendly young woman with moral values, which have been instilled by her parents. Don Narciso and Doña Hilda, through different jobs at home and in the community, they have always supported her. They are clear that education is basic for their daughters to have a good future.
Rosa comments that, “with the support of my parents, I have been able to achieve the goal of finishing the basic cycle, and I know that I will have their support to be able to fulfill one of my dreams: to graduate and be a successful professional, to be able to get a job and contribute to the economy of my home.
Rosa’s biggest dream is to study at the university to become a lawyer and notary, to work on her own, and thus be able to help her family which is the most important thing for her. Rosa recognizes the efforts that her parents make, and she shares a thought: “I commit myself to believe in me and fight for what I want”.
In the Scholarships program we have the commitment to accompany the young girls in their academic process and their extracurricular formation (reading habits, values, reinforcement of hygiene habits). For us as a project we know that the dreams and illusions of the scholarship students are the fundamental piece to achieve that they continue studying. And we are convinced that, step by step, it is possible to leave deep and strong roots in the young girls, in order to have a more just world full of many opportunities for them.
We have many reasons why to be grateful. But, above all, we are grateful for the support to our project and also for believing in the potential of young girls and making their dreams come true.
