¡Hola! My name is José. I am in Kindergarten and I love to play with toys like trucks and trailers. When I grow up, I want to be a singer and a musician like my papa.


My name is Lidia and I am studying in 1st grade this year at the San Rafael community school. I like going to school because I have a nice teacher and I like to color. I like to play with dolls and my favorite color is pink. I like cats and I help take care of the ones that we have at my house. When I am not in school I help with chores at home like washing clothes.


My name is Bryon. I am 19 years old and just started the 10th grade. In Guatemala, when you get to 10th grade you need to select a specific career path and I chose Business Administration. I hope to graduate with my high school degree in two years. One of my younger sisters graduated from high school last year and that gives me motivation to do well in school.


My name is Ferla and my family is new to Common Hope. I am really excited to be going to school now. I am 7 years old and in 1st grade. I live with my parents and older brother in San Miguel Milpas Altas. My dad works as a bus driver’s assistant, collecting money from the people who ride the bus. With this type of job my dad earns around $150 each month in order to support our family.


I’m Wilfer and I started 7th grade in January. Junior high is a lot harder but I am learning how to manage harder classes and more homework being. I know a few people my age who have dropped out of school to start working,  but it’s important to me that I keep going in school. I think having a sponsor would help me in this journey. I come from a large family of 10 and my dad supports our family by working as a private policeman.


My name is Siriam. I live in San Miguel Milpas Altas with my mom and two brothers. I’m in 5th grade. My mom is a single mom, so my brother and I help a lot around the house and we also help each other with homework.

Henry Luis

My name is Henry and I am 6 years old. I have five siblings. My dad is a farmer and we live in San Rafael. When I am not in school I sometimes go to help my dad in the fields.


My name is Alvaro and I’m 13 years old. I was super nervous to attend school for the first time. Now I love it! My favorite subjects are reading and calligraphy. I also enjoy reciting poetry at school.
