Hey PwC, you are awesome! Thanks for checking out this online gallery featuring the faces and stories of six kids in Guatemala.
In Guatemala, only 1 in 4 kids graduate from high school. Common Hope’s goal is to keep kids in school and on track by supporting their entire family. Right now, we are partnering with more than 14,000 individuals in 27 communities, offering health care, housing and family development programs. In November, we will celebrate our 2,000th graduate!
PwC will be hosting a time for you to learn more about Common Hope on Wednesday, September 27th from 9:30 – 11:30am. Come by anytime to find out ways you can make a BIG impact in the lives of families living in Guatemala and keep classrooms full! As a bonus, free coffee and snacks will be provided! Please contact Katie Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about this event or to hear her personal story about being a sponsor for Iliana.
WHAT CAN $30 DO?
One way to make a HUGE impact in the life of student in Guatemala is by sponsoring them. Your sponsorship dollars help provide the opportunity for education, an opportunity that changes lives. Below are six students that are already part of Common Hope’s program, attending school, but now they just need a sponsor. For as little as $30 per month, you will help financially support a child’s education. But more than that, you will be establishing a personal relationship with a student who needs extra encouragement. Many times, a sponsor’s words of encouragement are the difference between staying in school and dropping out.
EduardoI am 7 years old and in 1st grade. For me, school starts at 7:30am and ends at 12:30pm. When I get home my sister helps me with my homework. I like bunnies and when I grow up I want to be a soldier. I hope one day my sponsor can come visit me.
AstridThis is my first year of school! I love preschool. I really like coloring, dancing, playing with dolls, and cats. When I grow up, I want to be a teacher.
FelipeA few years ago my parents moved our family in order to find better job opportunities. Now we live close to Antigua and my parents sell ice cream. I help by selling candies. I’m in 5th grade and I’ve had some difficulties with a few of my classes. I’d love to have a sponsor!
MarilynMy mom, older sister and I live in a very small room on the land where my grandparents live. We don’t have much and my mom does her best supporting us by doing laundry for a living. I am in 3rd grade this year and calligraphy is my favorite class.
RodrigoI would really like to have a sponsor because it would be fun to read their letters and write back. My dad is a farmer and he raises beans and maize. He only went to school until 2nd grade. But my parents wanted me to have an education and this year I’m in 3rd grade.
StephanyCommon Hope’s programs have been a huge help to my family. I was able to get medical care when I needed it and we also participated in the Nurturing Parenting Program to learn how to better communicate as a family. This year I’m in 8th grade and one day I hope to become a bookkeeper.
EVERY AMOUNT HAS AN IMPACT
If you’re not ready to become a sponsor, that’s okay! Any and every amount has an impact. We greatly appreciate your support.
