This is their culture, these are their triumphs and their goals.

From the script of their St. Romero movie (on our website):
“As time went by, the children grew up at COAR, and were educated in values and learned to love and let themselves be loved. They worked for the wellbeing of others, transforming their own stories, and fighting for justice and the common good.”
