We are so proud to announce the graduation from sixth grade of three of our scholarship recipients who attend private school. Each of these graduates has overcome tremendous hardship and tragedy in their lives, yet each child has worked so hard to reach their goals. Given the fact that onl 40% of all children in Guatemala graduate from primary school and ultimately only 10% graduate from high school, this is indeed a great achievement. The outstanding grades of these three students also serve as an indicator of just how hard they have worked and how far they have come.
If you would like to be part of changing the life of a child living in poverty, Mentes is currently looking for sponsors and/or donors for this coming academic year (which starts in January). Your support can change the life of a child forever!
