I am so very proud of our family’s sponsored child, Silvia, who is just about to complete high school and plans to continue her education in Guatemala. And on the other end of the spectrum, our sponsored child Estela is just about to start school. I am pretty sure that without the CFCA sponsorship and support (financial and otherwise), school would not be an option for her (she is the youngest of 10). I vividly remember when we were in Guatemala last summer, Bob Hentzen (founder of CFCA) gently asking a teenage girl why she didn’t go to school. She just shrugged. That shrug may have been nonverbal but it spoke volumes. Thank you for everything you do to help girls and families!
