Abel lives with his parents, three brothers and one sister, in a brick house in Yapacani, Bolivia. He is in grade three and his favourite subject is Math. He enjoys playing soccer with his friends. Abel would like to become a police officer when he grows up. His father worked as a driver before he became ill, but now he cannot walk and is unable to work. His mother sells yucca to try to support the family. Sponsorship makes it possible for children to attend class every day and provides the supplies they need to complete their education, grow up healthy, and achieve their dreams.
