In July 2022, one of our students graduated as expected. In August 22 we started a new period, with 6 students in total that were already enrolled from before: 3 girls and 3 boys. 2 students are from Xochitlan, 1 from Zoquiaco, 2 from San Andrés Tzicuilan and 1 from Tepetzalan. 1 of the students is a 28 married mother of 3 that works in a store and selling tacos in the afternoon. The other five are students from ages 16-19. Two of them are also beneficiaries of the Humaniters Project Mexico and they only study their high school. The other students work: 2 as tourist guides, and the last one works helping out with chores in a house.
In August 22 no new students were received. In general we feel that we are not a very attractive option for students in the zone because of the amount that we charge (we charge 23 dollars per month for the program, though the program costs us approximately 110 dollars per student per month). Also, we are not an attractive option because by suscribing with us the students lose their scholarship "Benito Juarez" , a scholarship granted to the students by the government when they enroll in public schools in certain marginilized zones in Mexico (this program spans from preschool to high school). As the number of students is very small we are exploring a strategy to give it life again, but the strategy is not all quite clear yet. In the meantime, the students enrolled still have some time left with us, as shown in Figure 2.
