Sponsoring University Students from Cinquera, Our Sister City in El Salvador
This year our committee will provide scholarship funds for five low-income university students sponsored by Cinquera's community organization (ARDM). Students attend various universities: some have long bus rides, others must move to the capital, San Salvador.
This year, El Salvador's covid-19 quarantine turned them into on-line students, with stresses like finding wifi access spots in the countryside, working only on a cell phone, and using borrowed computers! Through determination, ingenuity and family support they completed the year successfully and are eager to continue.
