A Message From Our Scholars: Juana Estela

Posted on

Juana Estela’s family subsists on just a few thousand dollars every year – that’s less than a few dollars a day! Her father was only able to afford to send one of his daughter’s to school and chose to send Juana’s sister. Without the Reading Village program, Juana Estela never would have reached high school, much less be well on her way to graduating. For a girl who almost didn’t have the chance to stay in school, she now works every day to give young children the skills that they will need to finish their own educations.
