The Countdown Until the Unofficial End of Summer Continues: 36 Days Left

Only 36 days left in the Givology countdown until the unofficial end of summer! With your donation of any size, you can help us reach our goal of fully funding these students before the school year starts!

Day 25 Student: Concepcion Xep

Concepción and her family are from the small city of Santiago, Atitlán in Guatemala. Like the majority of indigenous women, Concepción’s mother never attended school, nor did her father. The predictable yet devastating cycle of poverty has produced 9 living children (2 that died under the age of 2). It took everything that both Concepción and the family had to get her through the 6th grade.

Concepción is starting the 8th grade this year and is in her second year of the Starfish One by One program.
