Marvin came to Mayatan in 2009 following the death of his father. It’s a joy to have this extroverted, energetic student on hand. Marvin also has an older brother in 9th grade here. His single mother manages as many of her son’s educational expenses as she can, but she has asked for help. The family had been living in San Pedro Sula, a large industrial city in Honduras, but they moved back to Copán following the father’s death. The father's company was supposed to contribute to Marvin’s education, but this never came through, and the mother was robbed of most of her savings on the bus to Copán from San Pedro. Marvin loves soccer and is one of the youngest players on our middle school squad.
