Para Adelante provides funding to Latin American women so that they can earn college and advanced degrees and become catalysts for change by first improving their own position in the community, providing for their families better, and then leading change in their communities.
Our goal is to provide these women with the resources they need to pursue the ever elusive university education and have them reinvest in their communities through community service. This community service is centered on the women sharing the knowledge gained during their education with members of their community and thereby increasing the return on everyone’s investment.
Para Adelante provides the women with scholarships. The scholarships cover not only tuition, school fees, and supplies for their studies, but other necessities such as transportation to class, housing, food, tutoring services, and child care.
