Mark Scott and Jennifer Slow Organization Aids Children COCHITI PUEBLO, N.M. (AP) — Christopher Arquero says his Futures for Children sponsor gives him spending money so he won't starve while away at school — a comment that draws giggles from younger siblings and cousins. While he delights in amusing the youngsters who live at the family home in Cochiti Pueblo, the help and support lent by his sponsor, Edith Jones of Albuquerque, isn't lost on the soft-spoken 13- year-old. "She asks me about school, how I'm doing in school," says Christopher, who attends a boarding school in Santa Fe. "She just tells me to try hard. She takes me out to eat." Christopher is one of 2,200 Indian children and young adults in New Mexico and Arizona enrolled in Futures for Children, an independent non-profit organization based in Albuquerque and "dedicated to helping American Indians in the Southwest help themselves." The national program, which links sponsors from the United States and Europe with Indian children from nine tribes, provides moral and financial support to encourage the children to stay in school.
