CONGRATULATIONS, Esnay, Alan and Andres on the celebration of your pre-graduation ceremony in preparation for your graduation from high school in December.  

And we are very proud of our students who did volunteer work during the month of May. Such a variety of activities: donating blood, feeding the homeless, visiting homes for the elderly, playing with children at a home, and much more.  We invite you check out our Volunteer Work album and see our students at work. 

HOW YOU CAN HELP THIS MONTH

We are still in need of new sponsors for some of our students, both high school and post-secondary. Education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty and sometimes as little as $20 per month can sponsor a high school student. Please check out ourSPONSORSHIP page on our website. Recurring or one time donations can be made on the GlobalGiving website.
