We raised money month by month for our first two students who graduated in November 2018. After that a kindly donor started to sponsor two more students with their registration fees each year.
In the meanwhile two more donors saw the effort involved and asked their sailing club to help and we were presented with the full funds for a two year scholarship for two female students. The fund is called the 2K Fund after the name of the donors boat and their students are doing well. In addition to their normal studies they are running a table at the Rio Dulce’s swap meets, pricing their stock and keeping the accounts. Their earnings go back into the fund to help the next students and will get a reference listing their skills when start to apply for work.
