First Syrian student arrives to Mexico thanks to Project HabeshaBy Valeria Bigurra Peñavera
A few months ago the Faculty of Law at the Aguascalientes “Bonaterra” campus of the Panamerican University (UP), announced its project "Habesha" through which Syrian students will receive assistance in completing their education from Mexico.
This project intends to help 30 Syrian refugees to complete their studies at universities in Mexico, and on Thursday, Hassan Essa, the first student, arrived in Mexico from Quito, Ecuador.
Hassan was received at the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) by members of Habesha and Gabriel Dominguez Garcia, the principal of the Faculty of Law of the UP, where he will start learning about Mexican culture and Spanish language. He will also get vocational guidance, among forms of assistance.

Essa Hassan is 26 years old. He was born in a small town located west of Syria and eventually moved to Damascus, where he graduated in library and information sciences at the University of Damascus.
The young student was forced to flee his country because if he hadn’t he would have been forced to join the army. He chose not to participate in the civil war currently raging there.
Hassan will remain in Mexico City a few days to take care of arrangements and will then be moved to the state of Aguascalientes, where he will remain for at least a year. Afterwards, he will be transferred to a university in the country where he will complete his degree in civil engineering.
The young man is the first of 30 students who are in the same situation and are expected to arrive soon in Mexico to complete their studies thanks to Habesha project.
It is noteworthy that the project began about two years ago and is maintained thanks to the funds of civil society groups. If you want to know more information about the project you can enter their website at www.proyectohabesha.org
