(-: The ISWA Scholarship Programme :-)
Happy Holidays from the #ISWAkids
The ISWA families received their holiday gift baskets, courtesy of Eve Annenberg and Matt Jacobs who visited us from Los Angeles. Then we had a huge holiday party in our newly built ISWA Centre. The party was made possible by Olga Sacasa and her family. They brought hundreds of gifts, 2 piñatas and tons of food. We satisfied well over 150 participants. Also, Alondra received the award for high honors in a private school! We are very proud of you, Alondra! This for me was the true meaning of Christmas. Not snow and gingerbread cookies, but the act of giving to those who have much less then yourself. Happy Holidays to everyone from our ISWA family. Thank you for making this year possible and everything you have done to help us. We really appreciate each one of you from the bottom of our hearts! -Tim

Congrats to Cesar who graduated into high school for 2017!
You are the man, Cesar! It can be very unpredictable...who will graduate or who will/will not succeed. Cesar had us on the edge of our seats this year and in the end, he set an example for the other kids in the program. This has been a long journey for all of us and we have all struggled in our own ways, but we took these steps together. Cesar passed both 5th and 6th grades this year and will advance into high school in 2017. We are so proud of your effort and not giving up! Thanks to ISWA and Cesar's sponsor, Jonice for making these first steps possible for us!
