The award ceremony took place on January 18, at a very modest structure which will provide a safe haven where our scholars can offer mentoring help to the younger students and children in the Paso a Paso program.
This center is being built by the Human and Community Development Foundation ( Fundehumac), with donations by some people in Colombia, including former MFI students who are now professionals, friends of Fundehumac and Friends of Colombia in Washington, D.C.
Thirteen students continue in the MFI program. Last year, four graduated from college but two of them will receive their diplomas in March 2015. This year, six students will finish but three of them will need to register in a “Diplomado Program” which is a new academic requirement. This diplomado is an extra semester.
Our students participated actively in the ceremony and parents, siblings and other guests enjoyed the event.
As always, the ceremony was a good experience and concluded in a harmonious note.
