Every child who arrives at NPH knows that he or she can receive an education if they have the desire to work for it. In a country where only 16% of the population attains a university degree, NPH educations provide a significant impact in the lives of our children.
Our university students stand as models to our younger children every day for what they can achieve. For our children, it is crucial that they believe that they are capable of succeeding, despite their past. When the university students who prepare their meals, care for them, teach them, and provide services essential to the home's functioning, come from the same circumstances, they inspire the confidence in our children that they are capable of the same future.
All of the 43 university students with NPH Guatemala live outside our main home, in order to become independent and have their own freedom as adults. Some of them rent homes together, others live with family members or find a scholarship to live in university residences. The support of NPH helps them cover basic needs like rent, food, tuition or supplies, and this support also provides a great chance for them to start learning about independence.
With your help, our students will receive the unique opportunity to attend a university and make a better life for themselves. We invite you to support the final stage in our young adults' development that will permit them to transition into our communities with a tremendous advantage.
