We are currently sponsoring the university education of seven youngsters from families living under marginal economic conditions from the settlement of Mineros San Juan Ushpa-Ushpa near Cochabamba. Subjects currently being studied include: Biochemistry/Pharmacy, Physics/Chemistry, Business Administration, Social Work and Medicine. We were previously also able to provide the money which allowed the local health care centre to remain open and expand.
San Ignacio / Rosa de Anze Home
We have sponsored the higher education of a number of young adults from these homes. Three have qualified as teachers, another with a medical degree; two others with nursing and medical technician qualifications respectively. Another girl received a Public Accountant qualification during 2021. We previously helped with the expenses of two boys in the final year of the school, which is adjacent to the San Ignacio Home. We are currently funding the further education of two boys from the school, both doing IT-related courses.
