Inspiring Letters from GROW Scholars

Inspiring Letters from GROW Scholars

Thanks to your support of the GROW Program, there are many children in Mexico and Ecuador who are able to achieve a brighter future and a better education. Letters are sent from the GROW scholars updating us on their progress in school and community service – opportunities they would not have if it were not for your involvement in the program.

After the jump you will find letters of inspiration from a few of our GROW scholars that are very thankful for your support.

“Mi nombre es Abigail tengo 14 años de edad y curso el 2° grado. Aproximadamente desde hace 9 meses recibo la beca por parte de Proyecto Amigo. Me siento muy afortunada al recibir esta beca ya que me ha traído muchos beneficios, uno de ellos es conocer y convivir con nuevas personas que me apoyan cuando lo necesito y sobre todo me hacen sentir especial.”

“My name is Abigail, I am 14 years old and in 2nd grade. I have been receiving the scholarship for 9 months. I am very fortunate to have received this scholarship, it has benefited me in many ways. Through the program, I have met new people that provide me with the support I need.”

“Mi nombre es Luis y tengo aproximadamente 6 años siendo parte de la familia de Proyecto Amigo, desde que estaba en la secundaria. Desde cuando llegué al Proyecto mi vida dio un giro inesperado, porque tenía que ser más responsable, cumplir con más obligaciones y organizarme mejor en las cosas que realizaría diariamente y lo supe enfrentar muy bien. Su apoyo me ha ayudado mucho porque si no fuera por ustedes, no sé dónde estaría ahora, quizás trabajando en las huertas, ustedes me cambiaron la vida por eso mi familia está muy agradecida.”

“My name is Luis, and I have been with Project Amigo for 6 years, since I was in high school. Because of the GROW Foundation my life has made a turn for the best. I had to be more responsible, had more obligations, and had to be more organized. Their support has helped me a lot and have changed my life and because of that my family and I are very grateful.”

“Mi nombre es Alejandro, tengo 13 años y estoy por terminar el primer grado de secundaria. Aparte en nuestro Servicio Social aplica ir a visitar a enfermos y personas mayores para poderles servir en algo y brindarles apoyo, eso nos hace sentir muy bien sobre todo porque nunca lo habíamos hecho antes, servir a nuestra comunidad nos hace sentir útiles e importantes, gracias a dios, a ustedes y a Proyecto Amigo.

“My name is Alejandro, I am 13 years old and I’m about to finish my first year in high school. The program allows us to help our community by providing assistance to the elderly, which makes us feel really good. It is something I never had the opportunity to do in the past.”

We hope these letters encourage your continued involvement with the GROW Program. Expect more from Luis, Alejandro, Abigail, and others in the near future.
