Miguel, in his third year of secondary school, is the oldest of four children in his family who attend Casa Chapi. His brother Orlandino is also in secondary school in Arequipa, and younger siblings attend primary school in Chivay. Miguel’s parents are shepherds in Tocra, and they cannot afford to send their four children to school.
Miguel likes to play football and eat “arroz chaufa” (fried rice). His favorite subject is math, and he hopes to become a pilot once he finishes school. His parents’ desire for their children is to become professionals, own their own homes, and have the opportunity to travel. Your support of Casa Chapi is making that possible.
