During 2012 the Foundation reached important achievements listed below:

  • 656 Benefited Children
  • 458 physical education classes given in "Ruben Dario, Emmanuel Bautista and San Francisco Javier" Schools
  • 8 special activities that create recreational spaces between the children, their families and their community
  • 560 hours dictated in Sports Training Schools (Football and Basketball programs)

It is important to mention that our children of the Basketball school were selected (because of their excellence in this sport) to participate in a one day camp in a Colombian city known as "Tunja". This activity  took place in December and consisted in a practice led by Patrik Pellerin, a Physical Education Coach from Houston, Texas. At the end of the day, 12 players who showed great discipline skills, were invited to participate in a basketball camp held in Houston. 10 of the 12 seats were taken by our children thanks to the discipline and perseverance with which they assume their trainings.


We cannot stop developing our programs in order to improve the quality of life of our children. That is why during 2013 our beneficiates started to work in their physical education classes through the new Foundation´s program named “SPARK”. This program has been helping them to develop physical and social abilities using an innovative methodology. This new program improves their health and behavior.

We would like you to check our 2012 Management Report in the link below and we can't wait to let you all know how is going 2013.

Thanks for your support.
