Children in rural Guatemala often never make in school beyond 7th or 8th grade due to lack of available funds to pay for tuition and school supplies. Many of these children begin working at a very young age to help contribute to the family’s income, putting their education on the backburner. With little hope of an education, many are destined to live their entire lives in poverty.
This was likely the path for Cesar as he and his family struggled to provide for their basic needs. When he was one years old, Cesar’s trajectory began to change after being sponsored through One More Child by a compassionate donor named Kaysey. Over the past 4 years, Cesar and his family have developed an incredible relationship with Kaysey. Not only were their physical needs being met, they were being exposed to the love of Christ and the Gospel message. As a result of receiving consistent sponsorship support, Cesar and his family have been able to embrace the goals of sponsorship by actively seeking the Lord and using every opportunity for growth and development within their entire family.
Cesar’s older brother Marvin has also been impacted by the support his family has received through One More Child. Marvin is now 16 years old and making efforts to beat the statistics of poverty. This past winter, he came back to the Center with his mother to discuss plans to help him further his education.
Through additional support from Kaysey and a part-time job for Marvin – together this sponsorship family was able to provide for this family’s needs. Today Marvin is enrolled in a typing class and applying his new skills and knowledge to his first level of secondary school.
One More Child sponsorship provides the resources for children like Cesar and Marvin to help them move beyond their circumstances and expose them to the love and hope of Jesus Christ.
