HIS STORY

Miguel is a young teenager who has lived in an orphanage since he was 5. Prior to that, he lived on the dangerous streets of Guatemala. Until Hope for Tomorrow started working with him in 2008, he had never had any educational training and at age 10 didn't even know how to read and write. After more than a year of having a personal tutor get him caught up with the basics, in 2010 he worked through 4 grades of material in one school year! This year, he officially started 9th grade!

Despite the hardships he has had to endure over the years, he has one of the sweetest spirits I have ever known. It is evident that inside he continues to deal with the pain and anger from his early experiences, but he is a fighter and won't let anything hold him back. The loving environment of the Children's Home is helping him deal with these emotions and become a great man of God.
