Kick start 20 careers before Labor Day

We need your help! We have 20 children in Guatemala who have a dream for what they’ll be when they grow up, but they need a sponsor who can help them get there. These children’s families would love to help them reach their dream, but they struggle to afford basic needs like food and housing let alone the cost of education—they are among the more than 50% of Guatemalans who live in poverty, making as little as $1 or $2 per day.

We’re trying to find a sponsor for each child by Labor Day (September 3) so they can stay in school and reach their dream. Do you know of anyone, perhaps someone in the same field, who would be willing to step up and help them get there? You can sponsor for just $1 or $2 per day ($30 or $60 per month).
