Fenix Director Timothy Ross writes from Bogota, Colombia of the extraordinary achievement of one of the foundation’s students:
“Last year Oriana’s father became seriously ill and unemployed, the family income plummeted and her parents had to give up their home and move in with relatives. Fundación Social Fénix supported Oriana with Saturday tuition and the fees for a scholarship preparation course and the public exam, helping her to gain a place for a degree in Community Education and Human Rights. Her first semester´s marks have just arrived with an extremely high average of over 86%. We are very proud of her.”
Congratulations Oriana from all at Children of Colombia. Our team is running in the ASICS London 10K this Sunday to help give young people like Oriana from very poor and disadvantaged backgrounds a chance to make a better future for themselves.
