Dear friend:

On the 4th and the 9th of July, respectively, both the United States and Argentina observed Independence Day. These are days on which we celebrate Liberty, pausing to gratefully remember the individual liberties we all enjoy – just as our nations won the right to pursue their own destinies and our forefathers won the freedom to choose how they wanted to live and who they wanted to be. Please collaborate with us so that every child in Argentina can also have the opportunity to choose his or her path in life.

In this issue, we’re sharing photos of some of the activities in which Cimientos graduates have volunteered their time and energy to help raise funds and brainstorm new projects. Also included are photos of the Graduate Network’s first meeting of the year, which was held in May and attended by 20 graduates.

Best regards,

María Hilaire (Cimientos Graduate Network Coordinator)

Querido amigo:

El 4 y 9 de Julio EEUU y Argentina respectivamente festejaron su Día de la Independencia. Son días en que se rinde homenaje a la libertad… Nuestros países tuvieron la libertad de elegir su camino, qué y quiénes querían ser y qué querían hacer…Ayudá a que los chicos de Argentina puedan tener la misma oportunidad de elegir su camino, colaborando con la Red de Egresados de Cimientos.

En esta edición, les presentamos fotos de algunas actividades en las que los egresados participaron como voluntarios para diseñar nuevos proyectos o recaudar fondos, así como otras del primer encuentro de egresados que realizamos en mayo y contó con 20 jóvenes participantes.
