Arnoldo always had a passion for people. When World Vision first partnered with his community, he was already the president of a local development committee.

"I heard about World Vision and realized they help train community leaders," says Arnoldo. "So I got involved."

After learning about children's rights, Arnoldo began to teach children, too. In fact, 390 students from six different schools were trained on their rights and responsibilities.

But Arnoldo quickly recognized a problem. "We were training ourselves to train the children, but no one was training the parents," he says.

Arnoldo took charge, discussing the issue with staff and working to design the Channels of Hope program, which teaches parents about how to protect and encourage their children.

Parental awareness and support helps children with their rights and responsibilities, which by extension, improves their confidence in education.

"Now, not only children know the laws, but parents also support them," says Arnoldo. "Thank you because thanks to your support, we see children smiling."

Help a child realize their full potential. Give the gift of education.
