GROW Bananas Help Educate and Create Scholars

GROW Bananas Help Educate and Create Scholars

This past 2012-2013 school year, Project Amigo saw eleven students graduate from high school and eleven students from college – the largest group of Project Amigo scholars ever to move on through high education.

It’s always rewarding to know that a task as simple as buying a banana can make a large impact on the lives of others. Not only are bananas one of the most nutritional snacks you can eat, but when you buy a GROW banana you are contributing to efforts that affect positively the lives of others.

Thanks to your generous support, GROW can continue to fund terrific non-profits such as Project Amigo to help guide these young minds to a better life. Without your help, many young adults would not have the chance to obtain an education.

Parents of these students are seeing their children achieve something they never thought was possible due to their economical and social difficulties. Today you are making dreams come true. Check out the list of students who have graduated:
