Personal Stories: Tania

Tania just turned 15 a few weeks ago, she would have liked to have a “fifteen’s party” to celebrate with her friends and family, but could not have it because it is not a custom to celebrate this type of party in her community and his parents don’t have enough money to organize a birthday party either.

She attends school only on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, because the other days she has to work selling food with a neighbor in the community of San Pablo, with the money she earns she can help her family a little and meet some expenses of her studies. Tania is an applied student, she is in the 2nd year of high school and has the dream of being a teacher, she has realized that in her community there are many young children who do not have access to education and she wants to help them through their knowledge.
