CORAZON DE VIDA :: BREAKING THE ODDS ONE YOUNG LIFE AT A TIME Posted on 20 Jun 14:58
We are so proud to announce that we had 2 additional college graduates this past month! Ivette is our first Law School graduate, and Obed our first Bioengineer.
Ivette and her siblings lived at the El Faro orphanage in Tijuana for many years and she overcame unbelievable challenges in her life to reach this goal. She struggled in her first year of university with her education major, but an incident at a part time job changed her career path to law school. She will focus on employment law that will give others a voice and justice when needed.
Obed moved into Rancho de los Niños at the age of 4 when his parents became the voluntary orphanage directors. When he was 10, he realized that one of his friends in a wheelchair was not able to play. Obed always remembered his friend and sought to help immobile children by going to university where he could learn to make prosthetics and other medical technology with an engineering degree. He wants to help other people, like his friend, who are immobile live a better life.
They both had to overcome so much to reach this milestone, however, the love and support of their Corazon de Vida family carried them through the difficult times in their journey. The children currently in the orphanages find inspiration in the over 20 university graduates in the last 7 years and the many more coming up. Thank you to our many sponsors who support the Corazon de Vida education program.
