José's project: Let children show their talents

José is a 19 year old boy with down syndrome who wants to show the world the beautiful way in which children can express themselves by showing their talents, since in Guatemala a lot of children stop playing from a young age and are sent to work instead or they only play video games.

In the same time, kids like him have talents to show, but no place to show them. José is himself a young artist. For his project, he will organize two events where children will show their talents in different arts such as dancing, singing or painting.

He is very passionate about cooking, therefore he will also cook for the children participating at the events.
