"Venezuelan children head back to school amid dire shortages" for The Washington Post / by Andrea Hernandez

Happy that Arantxa, Gabriel and Jospeh’s story in on The Washington Post today. Against all odds, their parents still manage to take them every day to school so that they can get an education. They are unsung heroes in this crisis. 
Venezuelan children returned to half-empty classrooms this fall as schools struggled with budget and teacher shortfalls, and parents scrambled to pay for food, let alone new uniforms and notebooks.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to tell it.
