Maria Santos Xol (40) with her daughter Yolanda Chub Xol (18), who is in 6th grade. Maria says, 'I'm grateful to my parents for sending me to school, for giving me the chance to learn to read and write. I'd like to train to be a secretary, but there's no money for that just now. If I do one day get the chance, I'd love to be able to help my family and my community. I'd fight for women's rights." I was against educating my children. I thought it was unnecessary. When I was a child, my parents didn't send me to school... My husband thought differently and always supported the idea of sending our kids to school. He helped me change my mind. Thank God he did! Seeing the benefits school brings for children helped too. If we get some money I'd like my girl to go back to school. Education is a good thing. I wish all of my kids had been given the chance.'
