I have volunteered at the Natalia de Siman orphanage for 8 years and Nuestro Ahora started supporting several of the girls from the orphanage a few years ago. The opportunity to go to University for these girls before was extremely limited and Nuesto Ahora has given the gift of education and a bright future to girls who could have easily ended up without jobs once they were too old for the orphanage. I've also noticed a shift in the mentality of the girls still at the orphanage about going to college. Because they have seen their peers participating in Nuestro Ahora, the possibility of going to college for the younger girls has become much more plausible and it is now something that they are actively working for instead of a distant and illusive goal. Nuestro Ahora is changing lives and the amount of dedication and sacrafice made by Nuestro Ahora staff and volunteers is incredible. It is clear that they will not allow this program to fail and instead will work tirelessly to expand and and reach as many students as possible.
