Gabino – Overcoming Poverty and Adversity


How would you pay for your child’s education when your annual income is less than $500? Gabino’s mother faced this on a daily basis. He is the youngest of three brothers, the oldest blinded by his enraged father and the middle born with Grand Mal seizures. Starting at a young age, Gabino was the “man” of the house taking care of his older siblings.

Gabino is finishing his last year of middle school.
