For me, relieving the pain of others is like fighting my own worries – that is why I can identify very well with social work and why I am so strongly involved in community and volunteer work. Ultimately, this is also what motivated me to found Fudeconec. We started this initiative in 1995 to help the people who are living in great need in our country. Since then we have achieved a lot. I myself am the best example of this: After graduating in Law, I studied to be a teacher so that I could work in the school. But that was still not enough for me; after my studies I took up theology and studied the Bible, so that I could share the knowledge I had gained with the people in my neighbourhood. Today I run the Reino Unido school founded by Fudeconec. Furthermore, I still work as a lawyer, so that I can help people in need with their legal problems. So I am happy to be able to do something good every day.
In the morning I go to school with my family. There I take care of both teaching and administrative tasks. My wife helps me in the secretariat and my children are themselves pupils in different classes. When I pay the teachers at the end of the month, the money is usually not enough to pay myself a salary. This is only possible because I also work as a lawyer. In the morning I am at school and in the afternoon I am there for my clients.
My biggest dream is to expand the school so that all the children from our neighborhood can go there. I hope that none of the children will have to stay on the street and that the little ones will never have to doubt that they can achieve something in life.
I love our country and the people who live there. That is why I get up every day and try to make our world a little better – as best I can.
