What was your childhood dream?
“I want to be a doctor and start the first clinic in my community,” 13-year-old Nahomy, in Honduras, confidently answers.
Achieving this dream won’t be easy. Nahomy lived with her grandparents on their farm for six years after her father migrated for work. While he was gone, she learned how to grow strawberries, coriander and squash. She watched as her grandfather knocked ripe lemons down from trees and learned from him how to harvest coffee.
Useful skills - but not her dream. Nahomy needed something more to reach her goal of becoming a doctor.
When she became a sponsored child, Nahomy was able to learn other skills too, including taking part in child protection training.
