Welcome the Newest GROW Scholar: Brian Arturo Plancarte de los Santos

GROW Scholar

Through your GROW by Organics Unlimited purchases, Organics Unlimited is able to give back to the communities in Mexico and Ecuador where our organic bananas are grown. The GROW program supports Project Amigo, a nonprofit partner that provides residents near Colima, Mexico with literacy, vision, dental and hearing clinics and also helps establish children’s educational programs, scholarships and boarding homes.

Many youth in Colima would not be able to continue their studies past a young age if it weren’t for the educational scholarships that GROW banana purchases fund. Brian Arturo Plancarte de los Santos is one of those students.

Brian is in his first year of junior high at a school sponsored by Project Amigo in Cerro de Ortega. His father works on a nearby banana farm and sometimes his mother does, too, but the family is very poor. Brian is a friend of Jorge, another GROW scholar, and the two friends are consistently the top students in the class. Brian has a 10 out of 10 GPA and his teacher agrees that he is a very bright young man. His younger sister, who is in fourth grade, is also a promising young student.

Brian works hard to improve his life through education. We are pleased that GROW funds can help support the educational costs of such a dedicated student. Organics Unlimited thanks its customers for their continued support of the GROW fund.
