The main aim is help young people to become in leaders and they can get new opportunities in the world, out of the problematic communities, the foundation try to get donation in companies,or entities no public.

How the employee got involved and why

When I was 16 years old, I met the foundation, "Nino y la bola" the boy with a ball, It's a organization that help poor kids, and young people in difficult communities, I was neighbor from "Los cuadros" One of the poorest and problematic towns in Costa Rica, I was a guy with problems, with a lot of problems, but they helped in difficult moments in my life, Now I help others in my community.

What work does the employee do for charity?

My work its be a leader. I am leader in my community. we work with children every Saturday given them academy support , we call "Tutorias", we work in two communities "los cuadros" and "El triangulo" they are very dangerous communities with problems about gangs, drugs, prostitution and violence, Also I have a group of teenagers, from Los cuadros, its a group of friendship, support and inspiration. Its very interesting what is inside in the hearts of them

What impact would winning have on the charity?

If we win, we can continue impacting the life of people in these communities , we can continue changing the life of these children, We can not change the past of children, but we can change the future of them. I really understand the suffer of these children because in the past I had the same suffer in my heart, winning we continue the ours mission. Change lifes, like in the past the people that helped me changed my life

What impact would winning have on the employee?

I want with all my heart help my communities, I want help the people suffering in these places, the really impact in my self is not just winning, the real impact in my self its the whole world know the reality, the two realities that humans we have, but sometimes we do not see. The world must know the truth, ours truth
