Carlos is studying his second year of high school at the General Francisco Menendez Educational Complex. He lives with his parents and three siblings. He has been impacted positively by the program, not only economically, but also morally and academically. He has been able to purchase school supplies and different items that help him in his studies thanks to the stipend he receives monthly. Through the program, Carlos has met many young people who are now his friends. He strongly believes that the scholarship program has helped improve his community in different areas, as it contributes to its education, health care of locals, and environmental preservation.  In the future, Carlos would like to get a job in order to help his siblings to study. His main goal is to be an agent of positive change in the Salvadoran society.
