Camilo is a blast to play soccer with; of course, so are many of his friends. Camilo is very energetic and loves to play sports. His favorite subject in school is Spanish, which is pretty useful since it is the national language. Camilo, his brother and sister, and his parents all live in a very small house made of plywood, in the hills of San Juan De Lurigancho. The neat thing about Camilo is that one day he would like to be a police officer. Going to AMG’s child and youth development center would give him the ability to get a good education, receives healthy meals, and learn important principles from the Bible – all of which would make him an excellent police officer in the future. Camilo needs your help to make this happen.
