Day 20: Second chances that are worth it!

Maurício was in our Portuguese sister-charity, UPG Sponsoring Programme in Escolinha do André, in Xai-Xai.

In 2014, he was removed from the programme because he was not attending school as he was supposed to. By the end of 2015, A Little Gesture was very happy to know that Maurício did not give up studying and was attending a 2-year Technical Course on Laboratory Techniques in Chicumbane. Because he went back to school, ALG gave Maurício a second chance as a scholarship holder and helped him again in his studies. Thanks to the Cascais City Hall, it was possible to finance his school material expenditures and transportation. 

Maurício has had great results, he has an average grade of 16, and is now undergoing an internship in Macia’s Health Centre. We are thrilled for giving him this opportunity and so proud of his achievements, mainly because he’s also helping the ones in need!    

ALG university and technical scholarships provide dedicated underprivileged youngsters like Maurício the chance of concluding their university studies. In 2016, ALG supported 11 dedicated and committed students and helped them to fulfil their dreams in the degrees of Law, Accounting, Engineering and Mineral Processing, Engineering and Food Processing and School Management and Administration. ALG Scholarships make dreams come true and change lives for ever.
