Manuel helping around his local community.
Dear Supporter of The GOD’S CHILD Project in El Salvador,
Through your constant support and dedication to our work with the families in Guazapa, El Salvador, we are happy to report that our students are achieving successes that even we couldn’t have imagined 25 years ago.
Let me tell you about Manuel, a young man who has now decided to pay it forward to the rest of the children in his community.
Manuel’s family has been a part of The GOD’S CHILD Project in El Salvador for over 8 years. Throughout this time, he and his sister have taken full advantage of the support they receive each month. From the first day Manuel and his sister joined the program, their family was able to receive a monthly support of rice, beans, clothing, shoes, school supplies, medical support, and—one of the most important things—an education.
Today, this young man has finished his studies at university level, and his younger sister just completed eighth grade. Though she is performing well in her classes, it is important that Manuel continues to support his sister with her homework. Manuel says, “It is a great joy to help her, especially because I am very experienced in some subjects.”
With the help of The GOD’S CHILD Project, this 23-year-old man has achieved one of his life’s greatest successes. In November, Manuel received the title of Professor of Secondary Education, specializing in mathematics. He achieved this success through many years of hard work and a determination to be able to help many more students in his community.
Many of the mothers in the community are very proud of his accomplishments, because Manuel has instilled a fire of knowledge in many of their children. His success has motivated them to work to achieve something with their lives, starting with a good education.
Manuel’s mother is exceptionally grateful for the support they have received from The GOD’S CHILD Project saying, “Without the help we received for school and our household needs, Manuel would have had a very difficult life, full of problems due to not having an education. Now he has been able to reach one of his dreams. I am so happy to see his success and happiness as he looks forward to the days of helping the younger kids in our community.”
Please help us continue helping children like Manuel achieve their dreams. Your generous contribution today will help us make a difference for the children of El Salvador.
Please, consider sharing this story of Manuel and how he is paying it forward to your family and friends. May it warm their hearts as it has yours. As each student grows, learns, and comes to believe that their dreams are possible, together we are breaking the chains of poverty, one child at a time.
Blessings to you in this new year,
