David left FairMail in 2009. He works in a goldmine now as a front loader operator. He also started a family. He still receives money from FairMail for his photos as he has some bestsellers that are being reprinted time after time. He still has the dream to study psychology when his children are older. He keeps part of his FairMail savings apart for that.
David in 2006:
Hi my friends, I am David, I am 16 years old and I live in El Milagro (district of Huanchaco in Perú). I am still going to secondary school. I am participating in Fairmail as a photographer and meanwhile, I am going to study. Fairmail is a very good way to pass my time because we learn things we don’t know yet. Moreover, it benefits us financially as it covers our school expenses and in that way, it diminishes the worries of our parents. It also helps the group to grow intellectually as we get to know volunteers who have knowledge about photography and always give us new insights.
During my time in Fairmail, I observed that they give us trust and space to reflect on important themes. One of the most important goals for us is to let you know that we do not only have richness in monuments and historical objects but also in a whole culture of life that is typical of the place in which we live, for our lifestyles, traditions, and nature. After secondary school, I want to study photography and psychology.
