    Grant to Fundacion Televisa


    Inigo Rodriguez, Nicolas Zebadua and Jose Antonio Alonso are interested in helping our community by writing a grant to Fundacion Televisa and asking for a short amount of money that will help buy materials for a proper education in some of our poorest schools in Mexico. We will like to provide computers and some other things that will help some students to have a better education.

    As a group, Jessica, Cecilia and I are seeking for some help in order to change the actual educational status of our community. With this in mind we plan to invest in educational programs imvolving arts. As artists, we are concerned with those who have artistic dreams but can't achieve them due to the lack of resources. For this reason, our main goal will be focused on the students interested in arts that attend some public schools around us.

    Hi! we are Alessandro, Sebastian, Alvaro and Benjamin and we are very excited and interested to be able to participate in this student grant writing project. We can now help and do something really useful for a community or foundation in Mexico City. We never thought that by doing a school project, we could actually earn money and help people in need. We want to make a difference, to stand out and actually do something that can have a positive impact.

    PS: sorry for any spelling mistake.

    Hello our names are Gabriel, Paul, Mariel and Lucia. We are exctied to start writing this grant because we are looking forward to help our community in need. We really want our voices to be heard. Its also a new ability that we will be able to gain, that could help us in the long run. For our gran we want to give water to communities that need it, because water is a vital necessity to survive, and living with out it would be a misery. We wouldnt want anyone to suffer because of it.

    Hi all!

    I will apologize in advance for any spelling mistakes I may or may not make. This group is made up of Antonio, Alfredo, Lucas, and myself. This is an interesting assignment to say the least as we have never had to do work that can actually become reality in the form of grants. I can say as of right now that we are interesting in spreading awareness about the different conflicts in the world. As well as working to help children, as there is a group here at school called Hogar Dulce Hogar that volunteers and helps a local orphanage.

    Hi! Our names are Claudia and Lorena and we are students at The American School Foundation, A.C. in Mexico City. We're excited about this student grant writing project because this way we will be able to help other people. We haven't come up with a title for our grant but the basic idea of this is to help children that don't have the best financial situations and that come every week to our school (Hogar Dulce Hogar) and to give them small classes like a school and teach them new things and help them succeed when they're older. Also make them see that there's someone for them out there and that they should be more open with the world since they have so many opportunities.

    Hello! In this grant writing group, Nina, Andres and Juan Pablo are very excited about this project. The writing of the actual grant is what we are not so excited about. We prefer presenting our project idea through a visual presentation and oral one as well. We are not great fans of extensive writing as much as we are of getting our message through to the community and making our idea become an actual project that helps the community itself. Our group is not yet sure what we want to do for the actual grant but we are interested in fundraising activities of some sort to clean up streets and make more public parks around areas in the city that are full of trees and open areas but with no true maintanance or care. It would be nice to make available more public areas free to anyone who wants to have a nice day outdoors, and encourage people to maintain the shape of the park as we leave it.

We are really to excited to start this project because we want to help our community and learn about the people in it. in addition, we want to spend time with people we have less resources than us. We want to write a grant for people who live around our community and help them experience other things than what they are used to. Cant wait to start!
