Juana has courageously fought for her education.
Join us in helping other girls follow in her footsteps.
Juana has two sisters and three brothers, and Juana is the second oldest. Juana‘s older sister followed a more traditional path in Chajul, ending up pregnant at age 12 and dropping out of school. Now, she is 22 with three kids. Without her scholarship from Limitless Horizons Ixil, Juana believes she would have been forced to start a family in her early teens too. Juana led the change for the rest of her siblings, who are all in school and on the path to being high school graduates too.
This year, Juana is working alongside staff and supporting scholars and families through Limitless Horizons Ixil’s fellowship program. Upon completion of her fellowship, she will be eligible for a university scholarship, and Juana plans to study nursing. She dreams of someday helping to provide needed health and wellness services in Chajul! She also is adamant about wanting to achieve all of her educational goals before getting married or having children.
Your gift will ensure that more girls achieve higher
levels of education, at rates never before seen in Chajul.
Thank you for helping girls like Juana get one step closer to their dreams each year.
