In 2006 I started playing soccer with street children in the center of "The city of eternal spring" Medellín, Colombia. Many children participated, and after a time a large group structurally participated. It was the same children who asked me the following question: "Can we play soccer in an official competition?"
"I want to do my best, but if I do, I want them to stay home and take classes at school," was my response.
Many children agreed and in 2007 we started with a boys and a girls team in an official competition. It was the beginning of what is now the Fundación Caminos, an organization that nowadays is now much more than soccer. Welcome to our website and enjoy discovering our work.
