In September we made another visit to one of our Gibson Soto Foundation students, Arcelia, who lives in Pozuelos, Mexico.Arcelia is studying manufacturing engineering with a focus in plastics. During the pandemic she is attending classes virtually from her home.Recently, Arcelia won 2nd place in a national contest where she was able to use construction debris and plastic bottles to develop a innovative construction material that can be used for new construction.Arcelia’s family income has been reduced to about $125 monthly due to the pandemic. Life became more complicated as her father battles severe illness unable to work the family crops. This year, Arcelia and her mother did all the farming and planted crops of corn, beans, and squash. Despite challenges, the family is so optimistic about life.Our Foundation is supporting Arcelia financially to pay for her college education, school supplies and internet, and also helping provide basic needs for her family.This experience taught us so much about love and kindness. We are touched forever. We are so proud of Arcelia.
