What does “Fulfilling Dreams” mean to me?

It’s the privilege to give to another and fulfill his or her dream. It also means having the merit to be able to give happiness and excitement to the following groups: children with special needs, children with serious diseases or at-risk youth. One of the unique things about the organisation is the great mix of wonderful people we have. My dear friends, who co-founded the association with me, devote heart and soul, time and again for these special children.

What has been a special moment for you?

Seeing the excitement and smiles of the children before they go into the stadium and seeing the happiness and sparkle in their eyes after the games is worth everything. Thank God that I have been privileged to be part of such a special organization and have had the honour to be able to enrich the lives of these special kids by making their dreams come true.

The mutual trust between the children and the volunteers is amazing. The volunteers meet the challenges with great determination.

Fulfilling Dreams is a family for teenagers with special needs. Special moments are those where you see participants make new friends and have great new experiences that will stay with them forever.

What does Fulfilling Dreams mean to me?

We have the merit to light up the lives of children who suffer from serious diseases and children from disadvantaged families. Even if it’s for a short period during an activity, we are able to give them some freedom from their difficult routines as they have a great time participating in a Fulfilling Dreams project.

What has been a special moment for you?

In every project I take a moment out to look from the side at the bright eyes of the children and the happiness that they display. It’s something that fills me with pride and gives me strength to continue on to the next project. Thank God, it’s a great privilege to be part of such a wonderful organisation!

What has been a special moment for you?

It was during the trip to the World Cup in Russia. In one of our breaks after watching the soccer game, some of the cahperones and trainees played soccer.

Fulfilling Dreams for me is a home, a home for good people and lovely children who are crazy about football (soccer)! ⚽ I will never forget the entrance to the Spain vs Chile game during the World Cup in Brazil at the Maracanã Stadium. I was in charge of two of the participants. It’s impossible to convey the joy the kids had that their dreams were coming true!
