In 2009 I traveled to South America. I have been in many places, but also spent two months with the kids of Performing Life in Cochabamba, Bolivia. They impressed me with their strength more than anyone!

The extreme poverty and de difficulties they already have had to conquer in there short lives is above immagination. Some of the kids are only 5 years old, living underneath a bridge, being high on glue permanantly!

The way John Connell is trying to learn them skills to be able to servive on their own is admirable. He spends all his time, energy and money on the kids. He learns them to earn money in possitive ways: juggling, singing, dancing. And he takes care they spend the money well.
