Little 8 year old, Maria Veronica is attending school this year but is not sure she will be able to go next year because her family doesn’t have a lot of money. Maria had a sponsor for this year but the sponsor was unable to continue and will have to drop her sponsorship of little Maria.
Maria is in the first grade this year and has 2 brothers. As with most families it is difficult to afford the fees and costs associated with sending their children to school. School supplies are expensive in the Guatemala villages and families don’t have the money to go to the city which is 3+ hours away to buy supplies at cheaper prices. The families in our sponsorship program are really happy that we have found sponsors for their children.
Can you help or do you know someone who can help Maria or another of the children go to school?
