The 71 families that returned to Los Medios to start their lives over never lost their love for life. Doña Rosa and the other villagers constantly keep in mind the luck and strength that kept them going through it all, as we can see in this video

We paid them a visit together with a team from Nice and Serious, a creative agency from London. We’ve got some updates on how are things going in the community, the flow of the panela production process and encountered new needs.

The committees they have created ensure a good activity of the school and church and address nutrition, law, economic and social issues. The kids are going to school, the main shop in the village manages to offer locals almost everything they need, but still, the panela production process is in continuous development.

The Los Medios community has come a long way thanks to your support. And it can go further with your help.

The 5 entrepreneurs with disabilities that are part of this project struggle with social inclusion every day. Their physical condition made it hard for them to find a job as an employee, so they decided to take the long and yet fulfilling road of entrepreneurship. It’s not easy, but it brings them the joy of creating, appreciation for their work and the pride of being able to support their families and send their children to school.

There are about 15,640 people with disabilities living in Medellín, out of which 68% live in poverty. They cannot find job opportunities in their environment and have to face economic, physical and psychological barriers on a daily basis.

Interactuar partnered with Amigos con Calor Humano Association to help transform the lives of these people, providing them the knowledge and training needed to develop their projects. This way, we are able to offer them a comprehensive support, enhancing their capacities to strengthen their businesses and supporting them to achieve their autonomy and independence.

Residents of Comuna 13 in Medellín have survived to the crossed fire between illegals and the authorities that took place for decades. This level of confrontation has limited the economic development of the population, and it has not let them overcome poverty. This project will allow 10 entrepreneurs living here to gain administrative and marketing skills and become social and economic leaders, thus to contribute to the identification and development of the market opportunities in the neighborhood they live in.

One of these entrepreneurs is John Jairo, husband, father of one and founder of Ecocalzer, an eco-friendly footwear producer. John Jairo wants to promote the responsible consumerism among people and to prove the world that Colombia produces and exports more qualitative products other than coffee. Ecocalzer manufactures biodegradable products out of organic fibers and recycles reusable products, such as PVC, PET recipients or rubber. They have 3 clients that buy the products and sell them further in their stores, but what Ecocalzer wants is to reach more customers in shopping malls. In order to be able to do this, they need to strengthen their production unit, increase their sales and production capacity and enhance their brand awareness within the country.
