Many of our Crecer kids are many years behind in school due to frequent educational disruption in their early years. This means that our young adults are feeling the warring desires of wanting to finish school while also the pressures from their families, community or culture in general for them to start giving back and earning their own way. And while what they could make in day labor seems enticing at their young age, it is not stable work and will not enable them to provide for their future family. We have met these kids in the middle. While they continue to study, they also have small jobs with us. Jobs in which they earn a small stipend. Something that will enable them to contribute outside the walls of Crecer while still investing in their future. Seems like a pretty great investment to us! $4,500 will go towards weekly stipends for five of our young adults.
