LOOTB #1864: Diego
This cool little dude is Diego. He is 5 years old, his favorite animals are chickens and his favorite color is purple!
He goes to preschool in a small town called Santiago on the edge of Lake Atitlán in Guatemala. We met him through a wonderful local project called Mayan Families–a nonprofit that reaches out in the Highlands of Guatemala, working to provide opportunities and assistance to the indigenous and impoverished people through education and community development programs. They believe that receiving an education is one of the most significant and sustainable ways in which children can improve the standard of living for themselves and their families and we couldn’t agree more. So far over 2,500 students are being currently sponsored to attend school through their program that would not have been able to go to school without a sponsor.
This notebook & pencil will allow him to pursue his passion of getting creative & learning (see The Value of a Notebook). We know that he’ll be able to do some awesome things at school or at home with it. Thank you for your support. We hope that every time you look at your LOOTB bracelet you think about him and the difference you made. If you’re interested in further helping out by sponsoring him, shoot an email to email@example.com. To learn even more about Mayan Families, check out their website www.mayanfamilies.org!
