Maria Isabel Tutucayo Clachua is a 12 year old girl from Lari, Peru. Her birthday is July 20, 2006, and she is currently in 6th grade. Maria loves to play soccer and enjoys studying math in school. Her favorite food is fried rice.
Maria lives in the Andes Mountains of Peru. Her parents do not have secure jobs and struggle to support their eight children. They will pick on local farms when there is work, but it is not enough to get by. Maria hopes through sponsorship to go to college and be a teacher. Can you help Maria?
