Learning to paint has always been my dream 
 
José Maria is a 14 year old teenager with great talent in painting. Coming from the Hulene neighborhood in Maputo City, he has been living separated from his mother for three years due to the lack of conditions for his support.  
 
"I knew my father very little, after he abandoned us, my mother became a water seller in the market of Xiquelene, reason why she could not support the expenses of the house and was forced to bring me to the Children's Town to continue my studies and learn other things. She always visits me and is happy for the conditions that the citadel offers me.
 
I have always told her that one day we will live together again, because in the future I will be a painter of Uncle Malangatana's level, and I will be able to build a house and support her.
