Elmer, who is 13 years old, is in 6th grade at the Toj Mech school. He lives with his mother’s family but does not recall his father at all because he was too young when he left them. He works in the vegetable fields and uses the money he makes to buy food for his family. His mother works whenever she can, but she does not have a permanent job.
Elmer wants to study to become a lawyer. He has chosen this profession because he is aware that many local people struggle to get help for legal issues that they have. Elmer told us that he needs a scholarship to be able to stay in school. While most of our students prefer face to face classes, for Elmer it means that without a sponsor’s help he will have difficulty to attend school and forego the money that he would have earned in the fields. He said that he loved attending the Xela Aid Study Center because he can not only learn but have fun participating in the activities that we provide.
