Valentina Ortiz Martinez
Valentina lives with her parents, her brother, and her two sisters in a slum called La Playa, on the outskirts of Barranquilla. Valentina’s father works several jobs to try to make ends meet and her mother takes care of the home and the children. Although they both work hard, they are unable to earn enough to provide for their household expenses and an education for Valentina. They live near school so Valentina is able to walk there. She enjoys studying and her dream is to graduate with honors.
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.
