In Colombia we:

  1. Set up a Magic Club and are training a group of Colombian children in the art of magic.  Concurrently, they are learning all of the important personal skills that come with that such as: self-confidence, self esteem, focus, discipline, practice, personal power and presence through standing up and performing.
  2. Perform on a regular basis in hospitals, orphanages, rural communities, and centers for street children.  Our magic students in the Magic Club often accompany us to our performances.
  3. Collaborate with Colombian magicians to maintain a sustainable program that has outlasted my 10 month Fulbright Grant period.  Our project has received substantial support from Colombia’s two most famous magicians, Gustavo Lorgia and Richard Sarmiento who regularly teaches our students at his magic school (the most renowned magic school in Latin America), La Escuela de Artes Magicas.
  4. Are grateful to Carlos ‘Mentor’ Lopez with Connecting Smiles who dedicates his passion and time to keeping the project running smoothly in Colombia.

We are currently seeking financial support to continue with our project.  Please see the tab titled Be a Part of the Magic for more information.
