I am fully convinced that the starting point of any change/development is education.”

“What I value most about ReachingU is that it is continually built on the heart and soul effort and passion of the volunteers, the directors and a small highly qualified and devoted staff.”

Denisse Norman Stainfeld

“The transparency and responsibility of the teams managing the funds and projects in Montevideo are also fundamental for me. I know firsthand the hard work accomplished by everyone, the impact of the implementation of the programs and their follow-up”
