This year (March) we were thrilled to celebrate with three of the BridgeWorks youth who graduated from their last year of high school. These young at-risk kids from tribal backgrounds have less than 10% chance of completing school. It takes a huge amount of courage and resilience for them to navigate through all the obstacles they face in order to complete high school. We are so very proud of them!
They have now started tertiary education – where the odds are even lower – less than 1% of youth in their circumstances complete tertiary level education. They are studying Teaching, Tourism/Hospitality, and Accounting. BridgeWorks will continue to support them as they move forward. Please keep them in your hearts and prayers!
