Grateful – part 1

We hear how thankful the students are, but you don’t have the same opportunity. You deserve to receive the gratitude since the support is coming directly from you, the donors. Below are some comments from the most recent applicants who have been accepted into the program. The thoughts are from the heart, the translation from Google.

 

Thank God I’m doing well in classes. I feel very grateful for the opportunity they (Adelante Mujer) has given me. Thank you for accepting me into the Adelante Mujer group.Thank you very much. Ingrid

Good morning sister Diane. I hope you are in good health. The reason for this message is to thank you with all my heart for giving me the opportunity to be eligible for the scholarship. I will do everything that is in my hands in order to have a good average and I hope not to disappoint you. Again thank you. Fanny

Why Only Women?

Our goal is to support women who are striving to become medical doctors. Why only women? How did that focus come about?

The program began when a very talented young woman told Sister Ann that she would have to drop out of the university because she had no money to continue. There it was, one woman reaching out to another. Sister Ann did what she could to help that student, and that was to ask another woman who had the means to help. That woman wrote a check which inspired Sister Ann to help more women, and so it went. Adelante Mujer, Advance Woman! was born.

A recent editorial in Nicaragua’s national paper “El Nuevo Diario” stated, “It is the machista culture that is destroying men, women and families and what we have to understand clearly is that 40% of households in Nicaragua are now sustained by women alone.”

“Abandoned families, children left in the care of extended families, single women and mothers who become the sole providers for their children; all are desperate plights for women and children living in a deeply impoverished country. In these homes, the mother is economically responsible for the children, and she is the most influential force in their upbringing.”

This is why it’s so important to continue supporting women. The whole society depends on women for it to function. When they become educated, their earning power improves and the family has a chance to escape poverty. The value of a good education will most likely be passed down to her children and all of the children in the extended family. Your contributions do so much more than educate one woman; to educate a woman is to educate a family, even a nation.

Please consider Adelante Mujer, Inc. in your estate planning.

The reply to the first concern is a definite “Yes, every penny of every donation is used to help young women in Nicaragua who are studying to be medical doctors. Every penny.” Continue reading “In Case You’re Wondering”

Shoulder Tap

Shoulder Taps

We have all heard the expression: Every once in a while God taps us on the shoulder. Nearly every minute of every day I hear things chiming, beeping, ringing, flashing, or clicking. Texts, emails, phone calls, ads, billboards, neon lights, and alerts all fight for my attention. How can I possibly notice a little tap? Continue reading “Shoulder Taps”
