Bio

Abril lives with her parents, grandma, younger sister, and many members of their extended family. Her dad works seasonally in the sugar cane fields (November-May) and goes without work the rest of the year. When he does have work he spends a lot of their family money drinking. He often returns to the house drunk where he often becomes violent with his family. Abril often feels responsible for her father when he has been drinking. Abril is currently in first grade. She enjoys school and loves playing with her little sister and cousins in her free time. Sponsorship would help Abril study consistently (despite her father's inconsistent employment) and dream for a better future.
