Ricardo P.

Sponsorship Type:

Ricardo Martin is 17 years old and is a student in his last year of middle school at the INEB School in San Martin Sacatepequez. He attends school every morning with homework given to him for the afternoons. He has been a participant in the LEAP Scholarship Program since 5th grade but needs a new sponsor. Ricardo is the head of his household and works in the vegetable fields locally to earn money to help his single mother with the family’s expenses. While working and studying is a challenge, he says that it is worth it because it gives him the opportunity to become a successful professional in the future, perhaps moving on to specialize in accountancy.
