"I could never have come this far without the sponsors help. Although the municipal upper secondary school is free, everything around costs so much. The help we received was very important. That I understand a lot better now. I am very grateful for it."
Ruth is a smart, young, happy girl full of life with great hope for the future. Despite the family's simple home and limited economic opportunities, she has done well. Today she works within the California Pizza Kitchen restaurant chain. She belongs to the human resources department where she conducts psychological tests for aspiring managers within the restaurant group.
"This job is ok but I want to go further. I want to obtain a master's degree and hope for a scholarship. Otherwise it will be difficult to pay for such an education. I want to study criminology and hope to someday work within the criminal justice system.
