Making 160 Colombian orphan dreams come true

My name is Felipe, I was born in La Gamarra, César, in the north region of Colombia. We were happy at home, we had a farm where we cultivated fruits and vegetables. One day, in 2000 our mother took us out of home, we were starting a trip to another city we didn´t know and my father stayed in the town looking for a job to support us.

We arrived to Bucaramanga and thanks to my mother we always had the necesary things to live. My mother, always looking the best for us found the Estructurar Foundation. There we can study, play and dream with a better tomorrow.  Every day I do my best for being better, and I hope, maybe in future, to returm to my farm.

Every day I say to my brothers they have to believe in themselves, to prepare themselves to be better every day and to be thankful with organizations like Estructurar.

Thank you very much for your support. You are making possible my family dreams and you are fulling my live of hope.

I almost forget, I want to be a graphic designer. In the place I study, there is a special course about it and I like it so much¡¡¡
