Building dreams for 160 Colombian orphans

Angel Luis Pedroso

My name is Angel Luis Pedroso, I am13 years and I was born in El Banco, Magdalena, I lived there the first years of my life. By situations beyond my control I had to commute towards Jagua de Ibirico, my dad says that some day i will understand the situation, but actually I don't.

I am living in Bucaramanga 6 years ago, we are five brothers and I am the greatest. When we arrived to Bucaramanga, my dad didn't have a job neither a home, but with dreams intact. Those dreams that every day takes care of my father again when he tells me, "Son you have to study, I want that you success!!

We were established in the northern city of Bucaramanga, the situation is complicated, but we found the Estructurar Foundation that has given us the opportunity to grow and build our dreams.

My mother left us one year ago, my dad´s support has been very important to us, I learned to fight for my dreams. He works in construction and every day works hard to build my family dreams.  I've been a mother to my brothers My little brother wants to be like me. My dream is to be biologist, I am preparing me since now, studying hard, doing some sports, and learning as much as possible.  I hope one day to return to my father every effort he did for the family.

Thanks to you, my family and many other children and families can build their future and change their reality.

Thank you very much!!
