For Children in Guatemala, Going to School is Not a Given

This time of year is synonymous with “Back to School” in the US. Stores have been advertising brightly-colored school supplies for months already, and children have made important decisions about what backpack to choose for this school year and what to wear on the first day of school. But what if the decision wasn’t about what to wear to school, but whether you got to go to school at all? For children in Guatemala, going to school is not a given.

Orphan Care

I don’t want him. I want nothing to do with him!”

Those were the Mom’s words the moment she saw her big-eyed newborn. The baby’s birth mother is a very needy, mentally ill woman living on the streets of Guatemala. And her baby found refuge at the Vida Children’s Home.
