Kevin is a teenager in a community in Honduras, where trafficking, drugs and dangerous conflicts affect so many youth.
Kevin started attending the Compassion Child Development Center in his community, and was able to attend a vocational school to achieve his dream of becoming a mechanic and supporting his family.
This young man was able to escape a path of poverty and hopelessness, and realize his God-given potential.
