We are closing this stage of work, young people, men and women, who we support for this school year some have graduated and others continue studying high school. Undoubtedly, the support provided for all of them have been very important because it has allowed them to have a little help that has meant a lot in their academic development. However, it has not only been for their benefit but also for the recovery of their families after the earthquakes that occurred on September 2017. This initiative, as we have expressed on previous occasions, was born as part of a program that Oaxaca Community Foundation has for the benefit of young students and who wants the drop-out rate at the high school level to be lower, since in our entity it represents a large number of students who, due to the conditions of economic vulnerability they suffer, have to enter working since a very young age.
The scholars of this school year have concluded their projects that they presented at the beginning of the cycle and that sought to improve some of the adverse conditions that they themselves identified and which, according to their possibilities have changed. Stresses that among young people, a problem that has been frequently observed by them and therefore, of their interest in generating some alternative has been the issue of solid waste management and the adverse effects that its mishandling entails; their initiatives have managed to generate greater awareness in their school environment and in some cases at the community level.
We know that the impact of this project will have its effects in the medium and long term, but we are convinced that youth education is a factor of transformation and strengthening of communities. It is because of the above, we are very grateful for the support that each of our donors has provided to this initiative.
