We hope you have great plans for the summer.
Unlike students here in the U.S. who are at the end of their school year, for our students in Ecuador their school year has just begun. The start of a new year means the students were in need of uniforms and school supplies and because of your support they are off to a great start. Below are some images of students lined up to receive their new uniforms and the boxes of supplies we were able to purchase to make sure they are well equipped to learn.
On behalf of the students supported by Mission Santa Maria – THANK YOU!
We are also happy to announce that the three students in our college scholarship program recently took their entrance exam and they all passed. Each of these students are from extremely poor families and they have all lived at the mission. This will truly be a life changing event for these students. We will be providing more personal highlighted articles on these students in the weeks to come.
