***LAFF now supports 110 vulnerable kids in Peru. Each of them has their own story. Each deserves the chance to change their own futures***
Alvaro - 10
Alvaro came to Azul Wasi in 2018 when he was 8 years old, after he was found working in the streets of Cusco. Due to extreme poverty, his parents could not take care of him and his siblings. Alvarito was extremely thin when he first arrived at Azul Wasi and was too shy to speak with the other boys. However, it only took a few months for him to become close friends with many of the boys and gain weight. Alvaro loves to play football, especially when he is goalie. His favorite "Avenger" is Hulk!
Paulo - 11
Paulo came to Azul Wasi when he was 9 years old. His mother suffers from substance abuse. Paulo is an increadibly smart boy - he is top of his class! Pablo like to play football, go to school and spend time with his friends. When he grows up he would like to be a policeman or be in the army. His best friend is Alvaro. He likes Captain America, Batman and Superman.
Zoraida and Javier - 17
Zoraida is the young mother of Javier, a sweet three-year-old boy. She came to Casa Mantay when Javier was only a baby. Since then, Zoraida has finished her highschool and is about to finish her vocational studies in Gastronomy at San Marcos Institute. Zoraida likes to draw anime and loves Korean culture and pop.
