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.
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.
