Educating with love 160 colombian kids

My name Yamile, I was born in November 3rd , 2001 in El Banco Magdalena (Colombia). I lived with my grandparents, my parents and brothers. I lived in a huge house wwith five rooms and amazing fruit trees. I enjoyed to go to the river where I spent hours having fun in the clear water and watching the fish in water and listening to the chirping of birds. Suddenly, my family had to run out at nigh looking for a place to lot up a ranch with Tables and plastics. It was sad not to to say goodbye to my friends, let my grandparents and understand why we had to leave our home. Now I am in 5 grade, I feel happy because I have new friends and they show me how much important I was which was really important for my selfconfidence. I participate in several complementary activities as the band and playing the drums. Our life has been hard, I had to live my parents divorce but I am not alone. God is with me and the foundation has played an important role in my life. Thank you very much for your support, you are making possible the impossible
