Hi my name is Mahendra. I am 12 years old. I live in Tanggun Titi, Bali with my family. I want to be a police officer. After school I study and then in the afternoon I will play soccer with my friends. At school I like math and science. Both of these subjects are very enjoyable, so much fun that I often lose track of time while studying. I study hard because I have goals that I want to achieve. I also want to provide a decent life for my parents in the future. We often have difficulties, my father and mother work together as farmers. We work on other people's land, so when it is time to harvest my parents give 40% of their sales to the owners of the land. From the rest of that income we use for our daily needs and to purchase new seeds and other equipment for the new harvest. Because our income is small, it makes it difficult for me to continue my education to Middle School. The upcoming fees and costs for Middle School are worrisome for me and my family. I hope I can continue! Make a difference in their lives by donating to Mahendra's education. When you do, you are lifting a heavy burden and giving them an opportunity to learn more about their purpose, potential and worth.
