4 of the beneficiaries at the School
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

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.
