Moisés' Story - from Street Child to Chef

This is Moisés, one of the young people The Colour of Hope is helping. Moisés grew up on the streets of Lima. He spent some time in a care home, but was forced to leave once he turned 18. He had no-where to go and no money to rent a room. Caught in the poverty trap, he would most likely have ended up back on the streets.

But thanks to the generosity and kindness of one of our young person sponsors, Rachel Hutchinson, and also to his own incredible determination and will-power, Moisés found somewhere to live and was able to finish school. Rachel is now funding him through a 2 year catering course in Lima, which will enable him to become a chef.

Moisés began studying in February this year and has been taking modules in all kinds of different foods, such as Chinese and Mediterranean cuisine, and is now doing a course in dinner service. A few weeks ago, he took part in a buffet breakfast, which was organised by his college and made open to the public. Next Friday, 30th November, he will be representing his college at a dinner party, which is to be held in a prestigious Lima restaurant, El Hawaiano, in Barranco.

With Rachel and The Colour of Hope's help, Moisés is becoming the successful young person he deserves to be. Once he finishes his course, he will be able to begin supporting himself and hopefully, one day, be able to fulfil his aim of helping his family. Keep up the good work Moisés!
