We currently work with the community, directly impacting 1,006 people and indirectly 2,672 people.

Challenge

Beyond the enchantments of Cartagena de Indias (Colombia), there is a glimpse of its true reality that almost no one sees. It is the second poorest city in Colombia, more than 50,742 children are under extreme vulnerability, exposed to drugs from an early age, mistreatment, gangs and the specter of child sex tourism. With this project, we will be able to protect children and provide them with nutritional care, education, and psychological support.

Solution

With your help, we will protect more than 300 children living in high-risk street situations, we will provide housing, nutritional recovery, quality education, psychosocial and family care, rehabilitation, medical care, recreation and development of their talents. Families will receive psychological care and rehabilitation.

Long-Term Impact

Your valuable contribution will enable children who are living in high-risk environments to have the opportunity of living a dignified life, ultimately changing mistreatment, abuse, and pain. We will increase education and entrepreneurs in the community making Cartagena stronger.
