Helpme to reach my goal!!

My name is Sandra Lopez, I'm a Guatemalan traditional birth attendant and a single mother of two children, one of them with an autism diagnosis. I'm asking for help to reach my goal to become a certified a professional midwife! I have attended more than 200 births working as a “comadrona” in a nonprofit organization in Guatemala, but the health care system does not provide a pathway to be certified as a midwife. Thanks to a prestigious midwifery school in El Paso, Texas called Maternidad  la Luz, I will be able to take a one-year course to be certified as a midwife. Please help me to reach my goal that will enable me to help the most underserved women of my native country to have a safe and compassionate delivery and enable me to provide for my own family. Budget/Presupuesto $4000.00 One year of midwifery school. $1800.00 Special education for one year (this is for my son) $2600 One year of food and maintenance for me and my children. $9600.00 One year rent. Im asking for your support to cover half of my budget/Estoy pidiendo tu apoyo para cubrir la mitad de mi presupuesto. Apoyame para alcanzar mi meta. Mi nombre es Sandra López soy comadrona(partera ansestral) de Guatemala y madre soltera de dos niños uno de ellos con diagnóstico de autismo. Ayudarme a certficarme como partera! He atendido mas de 200 partos trabajando en una organización no lucrativa en Guatemala, pero las politicas del sistema de salud del país no me permiten certificarme. Gracias a una prestigiosa escuela en El Paso Texas  podré hacer un curso de un año para poder certificarme como partera. Ayudame a alcanzar obtener la certificación tan anhelada  y así regresar a Guatemala, donde podré trabajar con otras personas para ayudar, capacitar y apoyar a las niñas y mujeres indígenas en mi país de origen.
