Mario lives with his mother and his brother in a structure that is made of cardboard with a straw roof, in Champerico, Guatemala. Life has been very hard for Mario's family since his father left. Mario is attending preschool class, where he loves drawing pictures. He enjoys playing soccer with his friends. He thinks he would like to become a police officer when he grows up. Sponsorship enables children to attend class every day and provides the supplies they need to get a good education, grow up healthy, and achieve their dreams.
