About Jose

Born: July 3, 2009

My name is Jose Luis and I live in Mexico. Mexico is a beautiful and diverse country but my community has suffered for decades from unrest and deep poverty. I live with my grandparents and three siblings. My mother abandoned the family and my father is not stable enough to keep us. We have really been struggling as a family and are so grateful to be at the Hope Project. I am a good student but struggle in math. I love to play soccer with the other children.

Juárez, Mexico

Once regarded as the most dangerous city in the world Juarez, Mexico sits just across the Rio Grande River. It is hard not to notice the stark contrast of wealth in the US and poverty in this wind-swept valley… or opportunity and despair. The Colonias inhabitants are comprised of the elderly, families, and widows with their children who came here to escape the crime of the city with hopes to find work at a local factory for mere dollars a day. Hope for a better life seems at their fingertips but never quite in reach due to the lack of opportunity and cost of living.
