Youth from poor neighbourhood set to join thousands of young Roman Catholics in Brazil for papal visit.

    Pope Francis is from Argentinia and his first foreign tour is creating a huge interest in his home country.

    Some young Argentineans from a poor neighbourhood will be able to travel to Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro to see the pope, thanks to scholarships offered by the Archbishop’s office.
