This photograph was taken when our group was volunteering in an English immersion program in the city of Chimbote Peru. The children came willing to learn and motivated to make a difference in their life. In this area of Peru there is a high poverty rate, so being able to speak English gives the children hope for a brighter future. This young girl was soft spoken and loved coloring. She came to school every day eager to use these new materials that we had brought from the United States.
