1st Concert 2022 of the Children's and Youth Orchestra

Last Saturday, September 3, the Las Tunas NGO Children's and Youth Orchestra offered the first concert of the year in the Chapel Ntra. Sra. de Luján, Tigre.

For most of the young musicians it also turned out to be their first concert. Before the attentive gaze of their families, they enjoyed the experience and moved us all with their dedication, effort and sensitivity, reflected in their presentation.

We look forward to the next concert in November!


Alejo González

From the first day Alejo participates responsibly and proactively in the Tutoring and Scholarships Program. He always takes part in activities with a big smile. As you can see, he expresses himself very well and has a great interest in learning. It is a pleasure to see him grow and accompany him in his path.

“Hello, good afternoon, I'm Alejo González. I am 13 years old, I am in 2nd year of high school. I'll tell you about my experience in the program, in which I have participated since 2020. I feel accompanied, the program helped me express myself more. What I like the most are the talks I have with my tutor Camila, talking about how I am doing at school, the things I do and what happens to me. It gives me that peace of mind that I have support if I need it. It helped me to develop more and to be more responsible. The truth is that I am very happy with the program, I mentioned it to a friend and today he is participating in the program as well, and he is very happy too. "


Fabián Silva

Fabían Silva, 18, finished high school last year and is currently in 1st year of the Programming degree at UTN.

Through the Tutoring and Scholarships Program we accompany him on his educational path since his 3rd year of high school, and we continue to do so during his university studies. We are so proud to see him move forward thanks to his hard work and dedication! We asked him about his experience in the program during his high school years, and this is what he told us:

 

“I entered the program when I started my 3rd. year high school. The truth is that it is a unique experience, throughout the 4 years I met new people with very good vibes (...) The last year was all done online, so it could not be enjoyed in its entirety, but it was fixed through virtuality.

The help they offer you both financially and through the tutors is very important and I am very grateful to the entire team. I recommend the program as long as you are committed to studying and complying with what it entails. "


María Contreras

 

Today we share the inspiring words of María, the first adult scholarship recipient of the Tutoring and Scholarships Program for Higher Studies. It fills us with joy to be able to accompany her and see how her progress and learning grow day by day, thanks to her effort and dedication. Onward, Maria!

 

“Hello, I am María, 36 years old, I want to tell you that I am from Las Tunas neighborhood, a worker, mother of 4 children, who this year became an administration student. I am doing a TECHNICATURE IN ADMINISTRATION, never thought of by me.

By doing an economics course at Las Tunas NGO, I discovered my interest and my understanding capacities in economic and management issues. They actually helped me discover them, providing and generating this workshop space in the midst of a pandemic that did not provide great future forecasts.

My husband and I work in our house, but we have to cover many needs, that is why my studies would be impossible to carry out without the financial help of the Tutoring and Scholarships program. As a mother I never dreamed of a career for myself, I always envisioned that of my children. But today, thanks to the program, I am the first university student in my family's history, just in my oldest son's last year of high school.

This decision strengthened in my children the desire to continue studying, and especially it challenged me to think about how I can contribute to the growth of my neighborhood. There is much to dream of and to do ...

The accompaniment through personal tutoring has been crucial at all times. Since I made the decision I counted on my tutor to be able to organize myself and find my study method. I’ll never forget the moment when she told me: "whether you're 18 or 50, you're a student just like everyone else." That put me in a place of responsibility, it placed me in the role of the protagonist, it dignified me: I AM A STUDENT.

In each tutoring session I see improvements. Mentoring helps me reflect, it focuses me. And the "TASKS" booklet makes me see what is important, what I want for myself, how much I can do and how much more I can develop my abilities. "


Micaela Heffel

Through the Tutoring and Scholarships Program we have accompanied Micaela Heffel since she was attending high school.

Today, 20 year-old Micaela is studying Physical Education, she is in her 3rd. year and continues to be part of the program, now in Higher Studies.

We are very happy to see the path that Mica is creating, with effort, dedication and confidence in her abilities. Today she tells us about her time in the program during high school:

“My experience in the program was very nice, it accompanied me throughout high school and helped me both financially and emotionally through the tutoring sessions and the workshops. It helped me to be more orderly and to be able to better organize my things and my time. I recommend it to others because everything you learn is useful, as you can implement those little lessons in the future and throughout your life. "
