CONGRATULATIONS, Luz Maria and Marcialon your final graduations in Education Sciences and Automobile Mechanics. We wish you all the best in the future.  

And we are very proud of our students who walked the 14 kilometers of “CAMINANDO POR LA VIDA” to raise money for the treatment of poor children with cancer. Thanks PROGESTLIBRERIA ARMONIARED CAPKANOO TOURS and GRAVITY for sponsoring our students on the walk.

HOW YOU CAN HELP THIS MONTH

This month we are focusing on one of our girls who has a full scholarship to study Veterinary Medicine. Silvia is now in her fourth semester and doing very well. Silvia has no family support and finds it impossible to cover all of her expenses with her part time job. For this reason Helping Hands will cover the monthly rent of her room ($78). Donations of any amount are very much appreciated and can be made on the GlobalGiving website or on Betterplace. Thanks so much.
