Perseverance... fuel for the realization of dreams
At 4,092 meters above sea level, in the Department of San Marcos, a place with cold weather and fog is the Tacaná volcano. It offers a privileged view of the volcanic mountain range of Guatemala, being the second-highest volcano in Central America, and is characterized by its flock of sheep and shepherds. It is worth mentioning that the summit is located on the borderline between Guatemala and Mexico.
Due to the proximity to Mexico, entire families migrate to Mexican farms in search of work, affecting the decisions and opportunities of children, which promotes a vicious cycle that lasts for generations. For this reason, the ‘Scholarship Project’ is committed to the education of girls and young women.
With much enthusiasm and energy, we began extracurricular training for the scholarship recipients, with topics such as reading, mathematics, and self-esteem, in order to encourage habits and a change in their thinking, in search of new opportunities to improve the quality of life of the families that each one of them represents.
At the same time, we started with training sessions for parents on the subject of self-esteem to achieve emotional stability for parents so that they can become involved in the academic education of their children.
In the Tacaná area, we serve 277 girls at the elementary level, with the desire to provide the tools they need to produce a change that will impact themselves and their families.
Thanks to your support, we will continue our struggle to be better people every day, promoting opportunities for personal and professional growth in each of the scholarship recipients, and contribute to the families’ own growth in communication, honesty, and love.
