Meet Manuel Guadalupe

Just before tropical storm Agatha hit, several photographers were in Guatemala taking portraits of students who need Sponsors. Caroline McGee, Communications Coordinator, tagged along and interviewed a few of those students. Over the next week, we will feature interviews of eight students from San Miguel, one of the communities where Common Hope works that was most affected by the storm.

    Because I write things like this for the children I want sponsored in our project, I have just one suggestion – video him in his home. In this beautiful garden, it seems like he has everything he needs. Tiene mas impacto si el esta en su casa. [tambien ya soy madrina de un nino en este proyecto.]

    Good point, Mira. Thank you for the suggestion — I will pass it along. I think it happened that this particular day they were taking portraits at our Antigua site, so Caroline was able to sneak some video as well while the kids were there. But I see your point, that their home environment would show more of the reality of the need!
