Dear Donors,

We would like to start by thanking you for your generous donations through Global Giving to support the project “Send Baru students to Training School for a year”. We are confident that with your help, we would soon reach our funding goal.

The following is a brief summary of the progress of the project you have supported:

As we informed in the last report, 6 students from Baru started their technical studies at the Technical and Entrepreneurship School of Baru Island.

All of them started to receive their transportation aid on May 11 2015.

Rosalis studies cuisine. Divisley is studying to be a bar tender. Fauricio, Wilner and Juan are studying to become electricians.

Elver begun his studies to become an electrician too, but he retired because he found a job, in which the working hours were incompatible with the School’s hours.

We have given to the 5 current students a total amount of 1.576.392 COP in transportation aid, as the following chart shows:

Name               May               June               July               Total amount per Student               Note

Rosalis             $176.000       $192.000         $208.000       $576.000         

Divisley            $176.000       $192.000         $208.000       $576.000

Fauricio           $46.488         $72.732           $92.976         $212.196                                            Fauricio takes Wilner to    

                                                                                                                                                       class everyday in his      

                                                                                                                                                       family´s motorkike. 

Juan                $46.488         $72.732           $92.976        $212.196

TOTAL            $444.976       $529.464         $601.952      $1.576.392

Fauricio (with Wilner) and Juan use their family motorcycle to go from Baru to the School in Santa Ana. We weekly give them a ticket to get the fuel they need at the Pasacaballos Gasoline Station.

On the other hand, we hired two Moto taxis (a transportation commonly use in the Island) to take Rosalis and Divisley to Santa Ana, two times a week, taking into account that they sleep in town the other two days.

Finally, we want to let you know that 4 more young interested students from Baru have applied to study accommodation at the Technical and Entrepreneurship School of Baru Island, so if they are accepted, we would give them too, the transportation aid.

We will continue to post regular reports to keep you informed on the project progress.

With gratitude,


Ana Milena Ordosgoitia and the Hernan Echavarria Foundation team
