Each month Worldfund takes the time to highlight a success story from one of the partner schools that they fund in Latin America. November’s high-lighted student was six-year-old Kevin, who attends a Worldfund sponsored Mano Amiga partner school in Aguascalientes, Mexico. Kevin is an only child being raised by his single mother, who is an administrative assistant at his school.
Kevin is an exceptional student. Not only did he obtain excellent grades last year, but he also had a perfect attendance record throughout the year. He maintains close relationships with his mother, his teachers and his peers. He loves math and English and is a regular participator in class.
Kevin is able to attend school through a sponsor-funded scholarship provided by Worldfund. He and his mother are both delighted with the education that he is receiving at his school, as is apparent by that beautiful healthy face you see smiling back at you below.
Worldfund currently provides financial support to seven education partners in Latin America whose schools and programs serve close to 30,000 students in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela. Its vision is for every child in Latin America to have access to a high-quality education and the tools to become a productive member of his or her local community.
