Basic Accounting and Administrative Tools for Beginners

That was the name of the 5 week seminar that we just completed in Bocachica. We had the opportunity of hosting this seminar together with the colaboration of several professors from the Rafael Nuñez University in Cartagena. You may remember that one of our staff girls, Marley Reyes, who has been on staff for the last 5 years, is attending this university full-time, studying Accounting and she was able to help organize and facilitate this event with the help of her professors. Classes were held once a week for 5 weeks at the mission and the topics covered were geared towards motivating and capacitating new small-business owners in Bocachica.
A typical day in class.

24 students successfully completed the seminar and recieved certificates from the University and YWAM.

Mercedes receiving her certificate. Mercedes is also studying part-time on Saturdays in Cartagena in the area of Tourism-related professions. She is one of our scholarship recipients.
