Odalys and her family life on top of a mountain overlooking the village of Majada Verde. Together with her older sister, Estefany and her little brother Evin undertake a dangerous one hour hike to reach the local school every day. Down the hill in the morning and back up again in the afternoon. The 8-year-old girl attends the second grade and values the opportunity of an education. She knows that it might be her ticket to a brighter future.
Her family is one of the most unfortunate in the area, living on less than 1€ a day. After walking through the mountains for hours, her mother occasionally sells some fruit in the city of Tegucigalpa. Her father tries his best to contribute food through working on a few small corn and bean fields the family owns. Clearly, this is not enough to feed his wife and kids sufficiently. Odalys, Esthefany and Evin have been part of the school lunch program we operate in Majada Verde right from the start.
While their condition has improved, the three still suffer from malnourishment. Despite her young age, Odalys is very caring and responsible. When the nutrition centre operates on school days, she always saves some of her own food to share it with her parents in the evening. By sponsoring Odalys you will change her life significantly! While making sure that she continues to have the opportunity to receive education the monthly donation will go into buying sufficient food for Odalys and her siblings, paying for health care in case she gets seriously sick as well as improving her living situation.
