A House for the Homeless

 

He is a hard working man.  He fights for his family.

He was raised in Alotenango and since he was a child he dreamed of becoming a professional and giving his family the kind of opportunity he never had.  As a child, his parents sent him to work so he had to stop attending school.  This wa a huge limitation for him in his development.  He only made it to fourth grade.  

When he grew up he married his wife who was also from a very poor family and didn't have a proper education.  She had stopped going to school because her parents thought that girls needed to stay home and work.

Both of them became agriculturers and worked the land.  They were never payed sufficient and always struggled to get food and other basic needs.

They currently live in a house that is made of sugar cane walls, a tin roof and a mud floor.  It is not a home that they are proud of and everytime it rains they get completely wet inside the house.  The children in the house are getting sick all the time because of these adverse living conditions.  This is why we need to help this family to achive their dream of owning their own home.  A basic home that will keep them out of the cold and out of the rain.  A home where they will not be getting sick as often and have a life that is more dignified  

 

Please help us help build a house for this family.
