Delia, Basic Education Program Facilitator, Bolivia
Delia is passionate about helping to improve educational opportunities in Cochabamba where she lives, especially because of the positive impact Save the Children had on her during her childhood years.
Delia was sponsored as a young girl and, as a teen, she participated in Save the Children's workshops on self-esteem, values and communication. Once timid, Delia began to express her thoughts and feelings in school and at home. Her grades improved. She then attended career workshops and became aware of the importance of finding a career path.
Today, Delia finds teaching to be a rewarding opportunity to give back to her community, especially children who benefit from Sponsorship the way she herself did.
