About

Manuel is the second of five children. He lives with his mother, as his father has abandoned them. Manual couldn't go to school for two years because his mother couldn't afford it, so he is particularly happy to have the support of the Condor Trust and to be making up for lost time. He is a very responsible boy. His passion is playing the guitar. According to his mother he spends every moment he can practicing. His great dream at the moment is to go to Loja at Christmas. This is a town in the south of Ecuador where his grandparents live, and Manuel wants to play them some songs on his guitar.

Hi Daniel. Thank you for your message. Good luck to you too!

I'm 18 years old now and I still have two years of school to complete. Because of my age, I can't be in the normal school system, so I've started in a different school with a different system. The teachers are helping me a lot and I'm managing my time well. I hope I can complete the final two years without problems and then continue studying so I can get a professional qualification.
Hi Manuel...
Feel encouraged and work hard . Nice time...
