On Saturday, October 12, The Gibson Soto Foundation inaugurated La Cima, our new facility in the City of Queretaro, Mexico. Mr. Calixto Corzo, President of the Private Assistance Board of the State of Querétaro, performed the ceremonial ribbon cutting.
During the event, six student beneficiaries of La Cima were introduced. All our students come from remote rural communities, many indigenous. Each of them has made great sacrifices and efforts to finish high school and to be able to apply to be supported by La Cima to go to college.
Five students are currently studying an engineering degree with disciplines in environmental, manufacturing, and aeronautical. One student is studying a bachelor’s degree in music.
The highlight of the event was when the students shared about the importance of the work of La Cima IAP, and the significant impact it has made on their lives. “To be able to study and achieve a degree from a university has changed my life, and the positive effect extends to my family and my community,” one student expressed.
All our beneficiaries have plans to support their families and communities economically and through community development projects as part of the Gibson Soto Foundation program.
