She Smiles

Barrios - Granada, Nicaragua

Look at the sparkle in those eyes. :) This little girl lives in Granada’s slums.

My children go off to school every day in their bright yellow school bus – carrying their backpacks and band instruments with them. They sit down in bright, friendly classrooms full of everything they could need. They have a library. And computers. And a lovely playground.

This little girl lives in a place where most children don’t have any of those things. And many of them never finish school… as soon as they are old enough, they have to leave school so they can work to help support their families. Those that do graduate are succeeding with all the odds stacked against them. But if they do make it… they might be able to work their way out of poverty and make a better life for themselves.
