Goiania Project 1
Female | Age: 12 | Birthdate: October 13, 2008
Maria lives with her parents in an extremely poor area of Goiania, a community where domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, and unemployment, are common issues which complicate daily life. The typical house is made of concrete block and mortar. While Marias father works as a tattoo artist, it is still difficult to provide for the family. Through your sponsorship Maria will be able to attend the Learning Center where she will receive loving Christian care, tutoring, nourishing meals, and medical care that her family cannot supply for her. Maria attends church with her family. While she is often busy helping with the chores, Maria does enjoy jumping rope, playing house and swiming, in her free time. Please remember to pray for Maria. Your love and support will help Maria receive the assistance she needs to develop to her full potential.

Although Brazil is South America's leading economic power; drugs, prostitution, unemployment and violence pollute the community of Jardim Dom Fernando 11 in Goiania. These issues combined with absent parents and divorce negatively affect the local youth. The Learning Center improves the kids' nutrition and teaches the saving grace of God through Bible stories, plays, and family visitations.
