Gladis, a former scholarship program participant, also spoke to the students and families. She just graduated from university with a law degree and cited both her family's support and the Pop Wuj project as key factors in achieving her goal. Gladis emphasized that all of the students in the program are capable of achieving their goals, but they must study and not marry as teenagers.
Pop Wuj provides partial scholarships for over 130 students, from kindergarten to university. In 2012, Pop Wuj's project supported 66 primary students and 72 secondary students. Seven students completed 6th grade and nine students completed básico (the equilvalent of 9th grade).
We're looking forward to another great year of educational support in 2013!
