18-year-old Sofia is from Arequipa, Peru. Due to family neglect, she was placed in Hogar Esperanza Children's Home when she was 8 years old. Sofia was chosen to be a part of the first Matsiko World Orphan Choir in 2011, and during the US tour, she learned English and grew into an outstanding leader among her peers.
After graduating from high school, Sofia was given the opportunity to study in an exchange program in the US, where she lives with a host family. She worked extremely hard and made the honor roll during her first year of college, and then spent her summer volunteering with Matsiko. Now she is ready to begin her second year of college. Due to her financial situation, Sofia needs sponsorship support to achieve her goal of completing her education in the US so that she can have the most opportunities to help other children living in orphanages in Peru.
If you are interested in helping Sofia achieve her dreams, you may choose to give regularly to her sponsorship support by choosing monthly or yearly sponsorship and clicking "Sponsor Me" (this will be a shared sponsorship because university tuition is so high) or you may give a one-time donation by clicking "Donate Now".
