Although 2019 was a very difficult year economically, politically and socially for our country, it was also a year full of successes for Fundación Oportunidad y Futuro - FOF. We started 2019 with 50 active students of which 14 graduated during the year.

Of the 14 students who completed their studies, 6 have been part of FOF since they began their college education in 2015, which means that they have been accompanied and guided by our mentors throughout their careers, a factor that definitely has contributed in a positive way in the performance and the outcome of these students throughout their time in college.
