I sponsor children with several different organizations. One of them, Common Hope, is striving to make changes for children living in Guatemala. It provides funds for education, health care, food, and other needs that a family may have. They are attempting to obtain 21 sponsorships by June 21, the start of summer, for children in San Miguel Milpas Altas. These children are in fifth and sixth grade, and many of them are already more educated than their parents. Many children are pulled out of school to assist in farm work and to help the family financially. There is also the fact that currently there is no high school in San Miguel and children seeking a high school education must go to Antigua or Guatemala City. This is something that Common Hope is trying to change. These children desperately want an education, something we all take for granted. If you have the ability, please consider offering one of these children the gift of hope and knowledge. Spark Hope!
