Description

La historia de cuatro niños migrantes no acompañados que se unen a lo largo del arduo viaje hacia el norte a través de México hasta la frontera de los Estados Unidos, Una jornada hacia la esperanza es una oda al poder de la esperanza y la conexión ante la incertidumbre y el miedo.

Cada año, aproximadamente 50,000 menores no acompañados llegan a la frontera entre los Estados Unidos y México para presentarse para asilo o visas relacionadas. La mayoría de estos niños huyen de la violencia sistémica del "Triángulo del Norte" de Centroamérica: Honduras, El Salvador y Guatemala. Una jornada hacia la esperanza cuenta la historia de Rodrigo, un niño de 14 años que escapa de la violencia hondureña; Alessandra, una guatemalteca de 10 años cuyo primer idioma es el Q'eqchi '; y los hermanos salvadoreños Laura y Nando. Aunque sus razones por hacer el viaje son diferentes y la jornada hacia el norte es peligroso, los cuatro niños se unen y se fortalecen mientras se comparten los sueños de su pasado y las esperanzas de su futuro.

Escrito en colaboración con el Proyecto Global sobre el Hambre y la Migración en la Colaboración de Innovación Social de la Universidad de Baylor, Una jornada hacia la esperanza presenta cuatro páginas de información adicional y recursos para padres, maestros de escuela, bibliotecarios y otros.
