Educating 160 orphans in Bucaramanga, Colombia

Joel David Hernandez Sandoval, a happy child, gifted, full of dreams and illusions that make your life and make a character, a whole day to day child overcomes small adversities of life, as well as calls those situations that may not want to remember. His family lived happily in a territory that was taken away by violence, now her dad is a vendor of sweets on the buses, the home she had gone, everything is very unsettled and his mother from time to time there for him. Joel was born in Bucaramanga and really live with an aunt who gives aid, yet none of this has the skills and dreams are gone, just the opposite, the little time he spends at home, good in the space allowed to live, has helped to participate in programs such as Theatre, an excellent actor in training, who lives in each work involved, appropriates his character so you can move to different ages and life situations. His enormous drive to succeed and get ahead do not stop, in class each day striving to be the best and fulfill their academic responsibilities with good results. In the Educational Institution is a school radio station and it is nice to see direct Joel, look for hymns in the flag hoisted, edit, radio spots to listen to their peers later in the hour of rest, recording the testimonies of people who visit the station, to encourage their peers to participate in radio programs, all these activities make Joel a tireless child for their dreams.
