Euler attends CadaNiño in Guatemala City three times a week. He appreciates the tutoring, Bible study, and healthy meals offered at the community outreach program. But he likes Fridays best because he and his friends play chess and learn about robotics. He dreams of one day using the STEM skills he is learning to change the world around him. Children in Euler’s community face poverty and hunger and are surrounded by gangs and violence. Euler and his friends say going to CadaNiño is one of their favorite things to do because they feel safe and loved there.
Bradford first heard about Euler and the importance of investing in the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children as he listened to KVNE Radio in East Texas. An engineer himself, he felt a kinship with the boy who loved talking about electromagnetic power. The two write regularly, sharing stories, drawings, and dreams for the future.
