Alonso is a loving, responsible young boy who lives at home with his mother, grandmother, and uncle. He enjoys playing with friends and helping his mother around the house, and hopes to become a policeman or doctor when he grows up! Although Alonso enjoys school and hopes to continue his education, he may be forced to drop out at young age if he doesn’t get the support he needs to help him with his reading and writing. Sadly, Alonso’s mother only brings in limited earnings from selling empanada’s on the street, and cannot afford the therapies that Alonso desperately needs.
By sponsoring Alonso, you can ensure that he is able to remain in school, is given access to the resources he needs to thrive, and is ultimately able to escape the cycle of poverty.
