Erik lives in Colombia with his father, mother and one sister. His father is a construction worker and his mother a housewife. He has some difficulty learning in school. The neighborhood where the family resides has challenges caused by gangs, crime, drugs and alcoholism. The parents and Erik will be so grateful if he will have support to go to the childcare center where he will receive healthcare, adequate nutrition, and an education.

Colombia is a country on the northern tip of South America and is characterized by several rainforests and the Andes Mountains. Employment opportunities are limited, and those who are able to find jobs often work in construction or housekeeping. In order to try to make ends meet, multiple families often share one home. Unfortunately, many adults and children in the area have resorted to drug use due to difficult circumstances. Additionally, most adults in the community have less than a sixth-grade education.
