"When I heard that there was an opportunity to return to education I thought today is the day! Returning to school after 10 years is a joy. I will be prepared to provide for my children and myself."
Suly had to drop out of school as a child because her mother could no longer afford to send her children without the support from their father.. Suly had been busy raising 2 children of her own when she heard from other young people in her community in Guatemala about an opportunity to return to study technical skills relevant to accessing decent work.
Now Suly is studying towards her Baccalaureate. She particularly enjoys the computer courses and dreams one day of becoming a computer graduate. Thanks to the Support of her community and her husband Suly feels encouraged and inspired to empower herself and her family.
Suly's story is part of the Learn4Dreams campaign ECLT is running this World Day against Child Labour. To learn more about supporting quality education check out our dedicated webpage here: eclt.org/learn4dreams.
