#20years20lessons Lesson #2 ~ Jason*

Jason* is a charismatic, energetic, and intelligent 12 year old who, at one point, claimed the title of the youngest child at the 'hogar.' Having spent nearly half his life with our family, Jason still never fails to impress us with his insight and wit. Read his lesson below:

I have learned a lot of things here at Amigos.  I have learned how to help the smallest kids, to work in agro and care for animals, and many other things. I’ve learned how to play soccer at Amigos and how to sweep and mop because before, I didn’t know how to do those things but they taught me here.

My teachers have also taught me a lot – how to be positive, to tell the truth, how to behave well, and from all the things they've taught me and the work I’ve done in school, I have really good grades now.
