169 children can dream with a better future

My name is Mauricio Martinez Perez, I like to play soccer and I dream to become in a great soccre player one day. I do my best every day and I wantto be the best in order to support my mother who has given everithing to me. I was born in Bucaramanga, but my mother had to leave San Alberto because of the public order situatuon. I live with my mom, my brothers and my grandmother. With the past of days I feel I am learning a lot and not long to achieve my goal.

I love to spend my freee time playing soccer, studying and sharing time with my friends, Although sometimes things aren´t easy, I try to be a smiley face, to support my brothers and tell them they have to struggle to achieve all they want.

Thank to all our donnors who make possible the dreams of childs like Mauricio. Thanks to you they are able to dream with a better future for them and for their families.

Kind regards,
