12-Year-Old Humanitarian Made Peru Government Minister for a Day


By Meredith Ganzman

You can’t fault Mamani Ramos for getting to work early on his life’s passion. He was sworn in as Peru’s Minister of Development and Social Inclusion for the day, and oh yeah he’s only 12-years-old.

Ramos says he wants to help the country’s poor young people and work on policies to bring social justice change.

So the government gave a shot to meet with senior management to talk more about his plans and visions.

During a ceremony, he took the oath on a bible and was given a red and white sash to celebrate his special position. Leaders praised for his hard work and dedication to humanitarian issues.
