How an ID card has changed one teen’s future for the better

With his papers in hand, Sergio is back at school in Paraguay and excited to earn his diploma 

By Rosanna Menchaca, communications manager, Paraguay

Sergio dropped out of high school — he couldn’t graduate anyway. The 16-year-old didn’t have the identity (ID) card he needed to legally register and earn his diploma. 

Since his mother lives in Argentina, and his father lives in a remote Paraguayan village with his new family, Sergio — who resides with his grandmother and uncle — didn’t get the legal ID he needed to continue his education. It’s a difficult process for children under 18 who don’t have parents present.

It was disheartening. "I began to miss school, my classmates, my classes — Guarani (language class), especially; I missed my dream. I realized I was not going to be what I wanted. Without an ID and without my studies, I was not part of anything. I felt empty, sad," he recalls.

But, when María del Carmen Arguello, a representative from his school, heard Sergio’s story, she found help. She was insistent: “Education is a right, and it should not be denied to anyone." 

After much negotiation and legalities, Arguello got the papers the young man needed. 

Now, Sergio has his ID, and he’s excited about his future. "I want to study to know how to handle machines, I want to earn money and buy a brick house for me and my grandmother," said the teen who lives in a community where Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) has been working with local partner, FortaleSer, since 2010. 

"[CCFC] is very important in the community, it helps our efforts and supports us to take appropriate action,” explains Arguello. “We are really grateful.”
