CONGRATULATIONS, Evelin, Lourdes and Franz for your graduations in Agronomy from the UMSA,  Luzmila for her graduation in Auxiliary Nursing and Fabiola for her graduation in Accounting!!  We are so proud of our new April graduates and wish them the very best for the future.

HELPING HANDS NEEDS EXTRA HELP THIS MONTH FOR 3 OF OUR GIRLS! 
Can you help us with sponsorships or one time donations on Globalgiving to make sure these students finish the school year. Recurring monthly donations are easy to set up and will be matched by GlobalGiving on the first donation. Jhenny graduates from high school this year in December and needs $25 per month to cover school materials, uniforms and graduation expenses.  Anahi and Ingrid need $20 per month. Our post secondary girls need $90 per month to cover school fees. For more information on each student please check our SPONSORSHIP page.
