Melton’s father is deceased, and his mother works as a nurse to provide for the family. They live in a house that is built with block walls and a tin roof. Melton dreams of becoming a nurse like his mother, or a professional athlete. His favorite school subject is PE and he enjoys playing with his cousins.

Guatemala is the most populated country in Central America. The majority religion is Christianity and is primarily Roman Catholic. Families in Guatemala suffer from many difficult circumstances such as drug use, alcoholism, physical violence, broken homes, and malnourishment. Often children are forced to begin working at an early age. Many families are extremely poor, live in small dilapidated homes and don’t make enough to provide for their physical needs.
