Alicia’s Story: Dreaming of a Better Guatemala

16-year-old Alicia wants to be a lawyer and help children in her community. Thanks to a Compassion scholarship, she is taking her first steps towards her goal.

Many children like Alicia have talents and passions they want to pursue, but school fees stand in their way. With your support, Compassion Guatemala will provide 200 scholarships to students who need financial help to stay in school. The students will attend reputable high schools and pick a specific area of study. After graduation they will enter the workforce or be eligible to pursue advanced degrees.

Alicia is now one step closer to law school, and we are excited to see what other doctors, teachers and professionals emerge and enact change in their communities because of this opportunity.

Thank you for your consideration to help these children have a brighter future with a gift to the Youth Development fund. Support for one scholar’s education is approximately $800.*

"I like to teach others what I know, and I'd like more people to learn these skills." - Alicia
