s150466-1 – A Father’s Love for Family and Community

See full story: Share# s150466-1 — Sponsored child Yuridia Alejandra Mamani Pomo, 13, her father Lucio Mamani Katari, and her mother Alejandrina Pomo sing a song at their home in Soracachi, Bolivia.

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

Yuridia’s mother Alejandrina Pomo, 42, has learned to cook nutritious meals through World Vision. Alejandrina now supplements traditional recipes with more nutritious fruits and vegetables grown in World Vision-built greenhouses.

Her father Lucio Mamani Katari is a farmer in Soracachi ADP who is breaking ground in his community. Sponsorship enables his generosity and strengthens his commitment to his daughter’s future.

Despite the area’s high poverty rate, Lucio makes ends meet for his family of eight thanks to sponsorship-funded agriculture training.

In fact, he gives away his best produce to others. Lucio also began to see the value of education for his children through sponsorship.

He went against cultural norms and encouraged his 13-year-old daughter, Yuridia, a sponsored child, to pursue more school. Since his community does not have a high school, Lucio sent Yuridia to live with an aunt in another city to continue her education.

This decision likely decreased the chance of early marriage for his daughter.
