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 will soon reach our funding goal.

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

Thanks to your donations, we are currently supporting 7 Baru students that attend to the Technical and Entrepreneurship School of Baru Island.

As we informed in our last report, the first 5 students, Rosalis (chef), Divisley (bar tender), Fauricio, Wilner and Juan (electricians), started to receive their transportation aid on May 2015.

We have given them a total amount of $3.058.176 COP for transportation.

All 5 will soon end the academic phase of their careers (6 months) and start the practice phase.  

Recently, 2 new students were selected to receive the transportation benefit: Dargelis and Yesenia. They both are studying accommodation at the Technical and Entrepreneurship School of Baru Island and will receive monthly $200.000 for transportation, starting in October.

Testimonies

In addition to the information given above, we would like to tell you a little bit more about the students you have supported.

This is why, we have prepare 2 testimonies, taken from a short interview we made to Juan and Fauricio:
