Q: Why did you choose to come to La Manzanilla?
Q: What are your career aspirations?
Q: How do you see that you can add to La Catalina Foundation’s vision?
Gaby is committed to continuing her studies, which would be difficult without financial assistance as she now even has a higher level of responsibility to assist her mother.
Another student we have been working with is Daniel. Daniel is another very talented student who was starting his first year of high school last year when he and some friends had a car accident, leaving him with spinal injuries and in a wheel chair. Although he has not been able to walk for over a year since the accident, the doctors have said he still has a 50% chance of being able to walk again. The foundation has been providing art classes for Daniel in his home, to help him develop his natural artistic abilities. Additionally, we are looking for a sponsor to provide a new or used laptop and a printer for Daniel.
We will provide classes and training for Daniel, but will need a sponsor to donate the equipment. Please let us know a.s.a.p. if you can assist with helping Daniel so he may have more opportunities for his future!
Finally, we are pleased to have made our website completely bi-lingual. To view the site in Spanish, click on the Spanish icon located on the home page. Thank you and happy summer to all! Please be sure to check our wish list this fall to help us gather supplies for the schools and foundation programs.
