Finally, the day arrives. Gordon was recently in Tarapoto at the time that Segundo's entry into the police academy arrived. Watching him change out of his suit and into the white t-shirt of a new recruit signified his entry into a new life phase. For the next 3 years, he will march, drill, learn and be transformed into one of the few indigenous law officers in the region.
This transformation will help bring respect and legitimacy to his community and his family. We would like to thank all of you who gave to our cause and will be in touch soon regarding a matter sweeter and more creamy. Again, thank you for your help. Without the money that we raised, Segundo would not have been able to get where he is today. FYI... This is where he is.
