We are happy to report more LifeNets successes in Guatemala. Our annual program for Guatemala consists of scholarships, habitat and livelihood development projects. It has made a significant difference in the quality of life in a very poor country.
We consider our scholarship program as one of greatest value because the outcome of an education leads to years of improved work conditions that result in better economic standing, esteem and further value to the community and church.
Here are some of our latest success stories:
In Guatemala we had a total of 14 young people receiving scholarships to finish high school as well as attend University. Here are some of the outcomes.
Two women graduates who have received LifeNets Developing Nations Scholarship Fund support. On the left is Sarai Gonzales Peñate and on the right is Blanca Godoy de Galdàmez. Sarai is working as teacher in an elementary school and Blanca Godoy has a business of shoe trading.
Two young ladies receiving 2005 scholarships: Lourdes Suevern Santos (left) and Ruth Suevern Santos.
Other scholarships from the past years with some continuing into this year (2006). Some of the school certificates are shown below. Most of these students are given help to complete their high school education so that they could go on to higher education. Our scholarship program is an important conduit giving teens the ability to develop their skills and go on in many cases to study at universities.
