Meet some of our new Scholars!

23 of our 41 Scholars are new this year – though most of them participated in our tutoring program last year.  And don’t forget that some of them still need Sponsors. Even if you are not able to make a financial commitment at this time, you may still be able to participate as a pen pal!

We asked all of our students to write a short introduction for all of you.  Today we present to you Gema & Miguel, both new Scholarship students in Flor de Bastión.  Both participated in our tutoring program last year!
