Bio

Juanita lives with her father, grandmother, and several uncles and cousins. Her father works as a security guard in a nearby town to provide what she needs. He struggles to provide everything she needs while supporting other family members as well. Juanita's mother left several years ago with all three of her brothers and is not involved in her life. Juanita will begin the fourth grade in 2015. She works hard to do well in school and attends weekly tutoring sessions to help with homework and other academic support. Juanita's favorite class in school is math and she enjoys practicing her multiplication tables. Juanita actively participates in church activities including Sunday School and school tutoring groups.

Juanita finished the third grade at the end of November! We are proud of her for continuing to attend tutoring taught by New Song staff. She has benefited greatly from this extra help. Thanks to your sponsorship of Juanita, she was able to receive dental care from the New Song Clinic and medicine when she was sick. Her sponsorship also allowed her to participate in an end of the school year celebration with her class. In December, Juanita and her family received a water filter and teaching on water borne illnesses. This filter will provide her and her family with clean, purified water for several years. Thank you for helping to provide this for her!

Juanita began the fourth grade at the beginning of February. She is a great student and continues to attend weekly tutoring sessions taught by New Song staff. This has been helpful to supplement what she is learning in class and give her some extra time. Juanita loves to read and borrows books during tutoring. Her teacher comments that Juanita does well in her classes and attends school daily. In math, her class is working on long division. This can be a difficult topic for many students so Juanita has been receiving extra instruction during tutoring. She improves every week. In Language Arts, Juanita is learning about synonyms and antonyms. Through her sponsorship, Juanita received a separate uniform to be able to fully participate in her PE class and her annual dental cleaning and fluoride treatment from the New Song Clinic. Thank you for your continued support of Juanita! We are excited to see her success this year!

April 2016

Juanita is so excited to be sponsored. She is such a sweet girl who tries hard in her classes. She wants to do well and puts from a lot of effect. She started the fifth grade at the beginning of February. Thanks to her sponsorship, she received her uniform, backpack, shoes, school supplies, and an athletic outfit to be able to participate in her physical education class. Her favorite class is math because she likes working with numbers. In social studies, her class has been completing maps of Nicaragua and Central America. Juanita has also been learning about the importance of donating blood. Juanita’s dad works as a guard in a nearby town.

Fall 2016

Juanita received her second uniform of the year in July. She is halfway through her fifth grade year and is working hard to keep her grades up. Juanita wants to do well and is so proud of herself for maintaining passing grades constantly in all of her classes. She continues to attend weekly tutoring sessions and always completes her homework. Juanita struggles more in math but absolutely loves to read. She has really enjoyed learning about analyzing descriptive texts. Her school also had a school-wide event celebrating typical Nicaraguan foods. Sponsorship helped provide the funds for this event and the church came together to cook for the school. Juanita also received her annual dental cleaning and fluoride treatment through the New Song Dental Clinic. Recently, her community was without running water for a couple of weeks. Sponsorship provided the local school with a bucket for every classroom so that the students could have drinking water while in class.
