Michelle Pfeifer is our hero in America
Michelle Pfeifer, Colombian, from Jupiter, Florida, USA, 17 year old student, is our heroine in the United States, thanks to her outstanding leadership and commitment to the Colombian Amazons' indigenous children.
Michelle has been committed to social causes of the triple border countries; Colombia, Brasi, and Peur, for three years now.
She has managed to support social causes from anonymity since she believes that the important thing is to change the world with the right actions regardless of who performs them.
This is why we want the people to know about our representative Michelle, so that more young people can reflect and worry about the social causes occurring currently in this world.

Additionally, we have developed a program that contributes to solve the environmental problem.in the city of Leticia.

These families received more than 3 tons in aid such as wheelchairs, crutches, walking sticks, toys, clothes, mattresses and helped more than 300 families in 2010.
