Maria lives with her parents, two brothers and three sisters, in an adobe structure in Cochabamba, Bolivia. She is in grade three and likes Music class the best. She enjoys colouring pictures. Maria's mother is suffering from kidney problems, but they can't afford medical attention. Maria thinks she would like to become a model when she grows up. Sponsorship enables children to attend class every day and provides the materials they need to complete their education, grow up healthy, and achieve their dreams.
