Alejandra Mayorga and her daugther Alondra share a moment at their home in the "La Chureca" community in Managua, Nicaragua. Dignity is the confidence free from pride that knows despite external obstacles you have the courage and strength within you to to not only empower yourself but to help others. Alejandra makes less than $200 a month, supporting 8 children and serving as a community mentor to disenfranchised youth. Despite her poverty, through dignity she is able to love selflessly.
