A few weeks ago, we were looking for a sponsor for Cristofer, a 13 year old boy, who due to his small size, was the target of constant bullying and violence in public school. Thankfully, a very generous donor stepped forward and provided enough money for Cristofer to attend private school for the rest of the academic year. We are stll looking for donations and/or permanent sponsors for Cristofer and his younger brother to attend private school for this coming school year.
Mentes scholarship recipients also attended their school´s second anniversary celebration, where many recipients gave speeches and performed with classmates. It was very exciting to see our scholarship recipient so happy and involved in their school´s activities. The progress all our scholarship recipients have made in terms of self confidence and higher self esteem is truly remarkable.
Finally, this week our students completed their third quarter exams. After the amazing academic success of our students from the second quarter, we can´t wait to see the results of their hard work from the third quarter. We are also very proud of the fact that our scholarship recipients are constanty praised by the colegio for their great conduct in school and their desire to learn. For children who have suffered from so much trauma and poverty, these accomplishments are truly amazing.
As always, we remain so grateful to all our sponsors and donors who make these success stories possible.
