Bio

Marlon lives with his mom and two younger siblings. His mom struggles to provide for her children as a single mom. She has been unable to find consistent work, but survives by washing and ironing clothes for other families in her neighborhood. Marlon will begin his first year of high school (US equivalent of 7th grade) in February 2014. He is an excellent student and was honored among the top students in his class. He enjoys studying Spanish and math. He dreams of becoming a mechanic when he grows up.

April 16, 2015

Marlon finished his first year of high school at the end of November. He is extremely excited to be on his school break. He struggled some with his grades and maintaining an interest in his classes towards the end of the year. His teacher commented that he could do well, but is easily distracted by the other students in the class. At the end of the school year, Marlon’s sponsorship was able to cover the costs of several school projects and an end of the year celebration with his class. Marlon’s family also received funds to have a small birthday party for him. Marlon and his family continue to love their new water filter!

His best grades are in PE and Cultural Studies with 90% in both classes. Math is his most difficult class. His sponsorship has helped him create maps for his geography class and complete class projects. Marlon is becoming a teenager and is beginning to struggle with his attitude.

Marlon’s attitude has been improving over the last few months. He is becoming less moody and laughs more often. He is also doing very well in his classes this year. We are proud to see Marlon growing and succeeding! Marlon has an 82% average overall in his first semester. His best grades are in Science (90%) and Technical Studies (86%). Math continues to be his most difficult class. Currently they are completely a unit on trigonometry in math. Marlon’s sponsorship continues to support his success in school. It has allowed him to complete investigations at local cyber cafes to research for class projects, cook traditional Nicaraguan food for his Cultural Studies class, and attend two field trips with his class. One of the field trips was to visit Managua to support one of his schoolmates who was presenting in the national Science fair. Marlon received his new uniform and shoes for the second semester of classes. Sponsorship also helped him to receive free medical care and medicine through the New Song clinic. Thank you for continuing to pour into Marlon.

April 2016

Marlon began his third year of high school at the beginning of February. Thanks to his sponsorship, he received his uniform, backpack, school supplies, shoes, and an athletic outfit for his physical education class. His favorite class is science because he likes learning about medicinal plants. He has been learning about how things in nature can be beneficial to a person’s health. His most difficult class is math and says that Spanish is his easiest. In Spanish, he is learning about the Nicaraguan poet and author, Ruben Dario. Marlon has been paying attention much better in youth and has become a great example for others. He will go on a day-long service trip with nine other youth. Marlon’s mom works cleaning houses and washing clothes.
