Dulce is a sweet little girl who comes from a poor family in Guatemala. She lives with her parents and her younger brother Gerber. She loves school and is a good student. She is also very artistic and loves to paint. Her favorite sport is soccer and she dreams of being a nurse or a teacher. Due to a loan to fix their house, the family is in a bad financial situation. Although her parents work very hard, they are unable to provide for their children. Her parents are frequently away from the house looking for work, and Dulce and her brother are left with various family members which leaves them feeling abandoned. To make matters worse, the area in which her family lives is very dangerous due to addicts and gang influence. Your sponsorship of Dulce would mean so much to her and her family, giving hope for a brighter future in Christ.
