Impact Story

Attitudes have shifted. A few years ago the role models of wealth and power the children saw were based on violence, guns and drugs. This is no longer true. Drug use and teen pregnancies are down significantly at Escuela Marina Orth. At our rural school we have parents  studying English on a weekly basis. We have families from the center of town trying to put their children in our school — enrollment has climbed steadily. A number of our graduates are now continuing on to university study, with the help of scholarships from us and our partners — an unthinkable dream just a few years ago. Others are studying at technological vocational schools.
