Singing Praises

Description

Thirteen-year-old sponsored child Yuridia Alejandra Mamani Pomo sings from a hymnal in Soracachi, Bolivia.

Yuridia’s family attends a Reformed Church of God that conducts services in Aymara, an indigenous language of Bolivia, and in Spanish. She’s a natural for the choir.

"I’m in seventh grade and my favorite subjects are mathematics and physics and music," Yuridia says.

Yuridia’s father, Lucio, went against cultural norms and encouraged her to pursue more schooling. Since his community does not have a high school, Lucio sent Yuridia to live with an aunt in another city to continue her education. 

Even in a poverty-stricken area he was able to afford it because he’s learned to grow more and better produce through World Vision’s agriculture training.

Lucio is breaking ground in his community by promoting education for girls and better farming practices in his community.

In fact, he generously gives away his best produce to others.
