Brightening the Future of Baja's Youth

By providing bright students from extremely poor families the financial support to afford a quality education.    BSF promises to support these kids until they have the skills necessary to get a good job with good wages even through college. Their part is to maintain high grades,  high moral code and to be a roll model for their fellow citizens. Our part is to raise enough money to keep our promise !

BSF Graduation Luncheon at Betuchinis

Last week we celebrated the graduation of five of our students, 1 from high school and 4 from university, at Betuchinis Italian Restaurant in Rosarito. The college graduates included 2 civil engineers who already have jobs with the state, a nurse and a psychologist. The Board members sponsored this event for the graduates and Betuchinis offered a family style fair at a favorable price to honor the student’s accomplishment. It was a festive event where the students all got up to speak to the group. Each of them gave thanks to the BSF to help them “realize their dreams” and expressed their intent to “pay it forward” by acting as mentors in their community. Lot’s of tear and cheers… you can see what some of them said below:

Juliana graduated from university and she writes to us:

Mision cumplida!!! Gracias por el todo el apoyo brindado, hoy conclui una gran meta que gracias a su apoyo se logro. Siento un gran orgullo ser parte de ustedes. Dios los bendiga siempre. Los amo por ser parte de mi vida. 

Rough Translation:

Mission accomplished! Thanks for all the support, I concluded today a goal thanks to support achievement. I feel a great pride be part of you. God bless you always. I love being part of my life. 

Andres is graduating this month as a 4 year Registered Nurse. This is what he wrote to us: 

Thank you very much indeed for all your support and love you have given me and shown me throughout my life.  Thanks to you and the program I have gone ahead and I'm about to finish my dream. Thanks to you will my dream will become reality.  

Thank you very much for giving me the joy of having two families because you all are my family and I love you and I will always be immensely grateful to each of you. 

This education will change my life for good and every day I will have more to do  and challenges that gradually I will be able to overcome and accomplish. 

Love, Andres.  In BSF since 2004

More Fun at Susana’s Restaurant

The big fund raiser wine-pairing lunch on June 13th at Susana's restaurant was a big success and the BSF cleared almost $1,000 -- and we didn't even have to cook!! We appreciate the support of the community and, especially, Susana who always outdoes herself with a wonderful menu and a great price to us! The Lechuza wines were spectacular and impressed even the most experienced wine aficionados in the crowd. Suffice to say everyone enjoyed the fabulous food and incredible wines and can’t wait for the next event.
