Our students continue to soar with the instruction from our Haitian trainers. Joel Belus led a group of 10 welding students through our level 1 curriculum and all 10 passed with 80% or higher!

GlobalGiving Campaign: Little by Little
Back in March, you helped us reach our goal to be accepted by GlobalGiving as a permanent non-profit on their website.
There are many perks to being a part of the GlobalGiving community and one is their matching campaigns!
This month, we have another opportunity to raise funds for Extollo through GlobalGiving! All eligible donations up to $50 per unique donor will be matched at 50% during the campaign. Just like last March, matching funds will not run out!
We invite you to mark your calendars and plan to give a gift of up to $50 so that we can benefit from this matching gift through GlobalGiving!
