Thanks to Comfandi and Educambio for the scholarship they gave to my son, and thanks for the new library in Comuna 20, Siloe. Mother of Juan Sebastian Tellez - December 2019
Hi, my name is Ashley Sarai Betancourt Marin, I'm 5 years old. When I grow up, I dream of becoming a doctor to be able to help people, or a veterinarian because I really like animals. One of the things I like the most about school is learning new things every day, that's why my favorite subjects are art because I love coloring, and math because there's always something different to learn.

Hi, my name is Juan Pablo Beltran, I am 5 years old and I will turn 6 in December. My dream when I grow up is to be a veterinarian or a nurse because I like to help others. In school, what I like the most is that we can learn new things every day, but sometimes I wish they would lend us more toys. My favorite subject is art because I really like to paint, and the other is English because it is very interesting to me how people speak in other parts of the world.

"I haven't decided yet what I want to study... I like drawing, I would like to create a shelter for stray animals: to collect them and deliver them to people who can adopt them. I especially like rabbits. Sometimes I also think about being a firefighter to help people when they need assistance."Read testimony
"I love cupcakes and cakes. The first time we made cupcakes and muffins was in a class at my school, La Fontaine. My dream is to have a bakery to help my parents with everything at home."Read testimony
GMD reaffirms its social and environmental commitment through its partnership with Educambio, a social enterprise that provides educational opportunities for children and youth in the Colombian Pacific through scholarships, school kits, and libraries, using sustainable production of notebooks, agendas, and calendars.

Thank you for believing, creating, and transforming.
"Hey, my name is Loren, I'm 7 years old and my birthday is on July 9th. When I grow up, I want to be a veterinarian. In my free time, I play with my Barbies, and what I like the most about school are the English classes because I learn new things from other countries."Read testimony
