The New Graduate

This month, we welcome Nurlela as our third student who we have funded from primary school all the way to graduation.

When Nurlela graduated from a Vocational High School, she was sure she could get a job that would change the life of her family.  But that did not last long.  After a couple of months working in her first real job, she realized that she needed more skills and knowledge and how difficult it can be to find a job in Jakarta with just a high school education.

Nurlela decided to go back to school and pursue a college degree in 2017. After her first year, she said, “I am glad I decided to take the opportunity offered from XSProject to get my college diploma.  I learned so much more and gained more confidence.”

Since it is hard to find a new job during this pandemic, Nurlela took the opportunity to work full time as a teacher for students she used to tutor.  Via distance learning, she is preparing the Grade 6 students for their final exam so they can be admitted to better Middle Schools in the area.

College used to be just a dream for the girls from the trash pickers community.  There will be many more students who will follow Nurlela’s footsteps.

Your support of the XSCollege Scholarship Fund with a one time or recurring monthly donation will provide college degrees to exceptional students from the Cirendeu trash picker community
