Congratulations to our first university graduate!

To our great joy, Thalia (29) received her diploma in accounting and auditing last week as the first university graduate from the ministry in Guayaquil, Ecuador. She grew up in very poor and broken circumstances, was enrolled in school very late as a child, and even studying seemed impossible for her. She joined the workshops at the age of 19 and soon volunteered in youth work and administration. After graduating from school, she got a place at a private fee-paying university, whose tuition fees were covered by a sponsorship. She has now successfully completed her studies and has become a role model for many young people in the work.

With your support, you too can make it possible for young people like Thalia to study. You can find out more here.
