I currently live with my grandmother, who approached Common Hope to help receive support for my education since she is unable to afford to send me to school. I am in 3rd grade this year and will be turning 10 in August. We live in a house that has steel siding and dirt floor.
Excludes post from front page and blog.
My brother, José, is also part of this gallery and we are both in need of a sponsor. My family is new to Common Hope and I am new to going to school. I am 4 years old and studying in kindergarten. In Guatemala, kindergarten precedes preschool.
My parents, younger sister and I live in the community of San Rafael. There I study in 1st grade and like learning about letters and numbers. My family does not own the land we live on and our house is made out of cornstalks, a steel roof and a dirt floor.
I recently was sponsored by a member of Faith Lutheran and I am so excited that they will support me and my dream of becoming a Business Administrator!
My favorite subject in school this year is math because I like to multiply and subtract. I am 9 years old and in 3rd grade. I go to school in the morning and my mom helps me with my homework every afternoon. My brother, Wilmer, and I are both in need of a sponsor.
I live in an agricultural community. Both of my parents farm to earn a living and my older siblings help them when they are not in school. I am 5 years old, just started school this year and I have 4 sisters and 4 brothers. My sisters walk me to school each day.
