Guatemala is a country plagued by violent street gangs, where a child risks his or her life simply by playing outside. But with the help of child sponsorship, World Vision’s after school programs are keeping the children of Guatemala out of harm’s way.
It’s been difficult for parents to see the value of educating their children; many choosing instead to have their kids earn money by working. But thanks to Canadian sponsors, 333 children in grades one to three are now in programs that will help strengthen their skills in language and math.
Sponsor a child in Guatemala. You have the power to create a better world.
