Take Micaela’s story, for example. Earlier this year, Micaela (pictured on the left) was almost certain she wouldn’t get to graduate. She’s the youngest of eight children and her parents were struggling to provide for her education. Every day to help out she would make beaded bracelets to sell to tourists on the main street in town.
One day Micaela’s teachers at the Panabaj Primary School identified her as an ideal candidate for Pueblo a Pueblo’s support because “she’s both dedicated and responsible,” according to Johanny, our project manager. Since then, Micaela has been able to focus on her studies rather than worry about affording to stay in school. This October she's one of our 6th grade graduates and dreams to become a lawyer!
This is why we’re so thankful to all of you who support our Primary Education Scholarships project. If it weren't for you, so many students like Micaela would be unable to complete their primary education.
