Salome Sofia Perez Escudero
Salome lives with her parents and three brothers in a family home with several other families in a slum called La Playa, on the outskirts of Barranquilla. Her father is a bricklayer, working hard doing different jobs seasonally as he can find work, and her mother is a housewife. The family cannot afford to send Salome to school and provide for the family. Salome arrives to school by foot, walking with friends and relatives. Salome is a happy girl and she likes to study, color, and play with her classmates.
La Rosa de Saron is an educational outreach to a displaced community suffering from poverty and persecution. Children at the school receive a quality education, school uniforms, and health care. They are lovingly taught the Word of God.
