Mario Tutucayo Chipa is a 9 year old boy from Lari, Peru. His birthday is September 19, 2009, and he is currently in 3rd grade. Mario loves to play soccer. His favorite class in school is math, and his favorite food is noodles.
Mario comes from a large family with 9 siblings. His parents make very little as shepherds high in the Andes Mountains. When there is work available, his mother will pick on local farms, as well, but they struggle to survive. Mario hopes to be a police officer one day. Can you help Mario?
