José lives in Peru. He was 7 years old when he founded the first ecological bank for children. His motivation is to fight poverty among children!

Jose himself grew up in poverty. Just like many of his peers he had no money for school stuff or regularly went to school without breakfast regularly. Now he teaches children at different schools in Peru in on how to save money and how to keep the enviroment clean.

The project started of with 20 children and has now grown to some 2,500 children students. All of them can afford their school fees now. José strives to offer education to at least 20.000 children more.
