By Nelly Milla Milla – Scholarship Coordinator
April and May 2021: I held meetings with parents and student beneficiaries of the scholarship program, in the municipalities of: San Antonio, Camasca, Magdalena and Concepción. In the municipality of Santa Lucia, no meeting was held due to the restriction measures against Covid-19 that it had at that time due to the high incidence of Covid-19 cases. However, coordination was carried out with a counselor from the educational center via telephone. The objective of the meetings was the presentation of those responsible for the scholarship program at the local level, as well as to publicize the new structure of the program that will be executed during this school year.September 2021: I communicated with the Counselors of each Educational Center, to monitor and evaluate the performance of each recipient. Despite being an unusual year due to the pandemic, and due to the dropping out of many young people who left Honduras to migrate to the US, the students did very well.
October 2021: I was contacted by the counselors of the beneficiary institutions to inform me that the graduation dates were approaching and the young people needed help with their graduation costs. StS agreed to provide support to these young people after formalizing the application for financial aid for graduation.
