Zalma is a sweet, beautiful young girl. She lives in San Juan De Lurigancho, a poor suburb in northeast Lima, Peru. Zalma loves school, and her favorite subject is Social Studies. She enjoys dancing and playing with friends. Her father worked as a guard, but has been wrongfully accused of robbery. As a result, he has found it very difficult to land a new job, which makes it impossible to provide for his family. Zalma and her two siblings live together with her parents in a small house. Your sponsorship will allow Zalma to participate in AMG’s child and youth development center where she will receive food, an education and Bible training. Since Zalma wants to be a doctor when she grows up, her involvement in the AMG program will give her the help she needs to reach her goal. Would you consider sponsoring Zalma today? Together, we can transform this family in Jesus’ name.
