    Alex

    Ecuador

    Whenever you see a group of our students laughing and smiling, you can be sure that Alex is at the heart of it. He has a warm and attractive personality which means he makes friends easily, and his facility with words makes him a natural story-teller among any group he joins. As well as being popular, he is good at sports and interested in computers. His dream of graduating with a degree in computer studies, which he has held for several years, is ever nearer to becoming a reality. It makes his mother, who he is very close to, extremely proud: he will be the first university graduate in his extensive family.

    Karen

    Ecuador

    Karen is the second youngest of six children aged between 6 and 19. She lives with her brothers, sisters and parents in a small rented house with three rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom. The family income is low and there is often not enough money to go round. Before getting help from Condor Trust, she was often unable to complete tasks at school because she couldn't buy the necessary things. It has been a great relief to her to know that her educational expenses can now be paid and that she no longer loses out when there are special activities at school. She takes the challenge of being a good student very seriously and wants in the future to have a professional career, probably as an accountant, so she can help her parents as well as herself. When not studying, Karen loves to play football.
