To our current and prospective supporters,
Thanks to the help and contributions of people like you we are well on the way to achieving our goals here at PAN. Every year we open our doors to over 7,000 children and their families, but we’re always looking for ways to better enrich their experience at our centre. In this report we’d love to show you what we’ve achieved with the help of your donations and how much more we could do with a small monthly donation.
One of our main aims this year is to rebuild one of our foster homes which was unfortunately lost in a fire. Rebuilding this facility would enable us to provide more safe spaces for the young people in our care, especially for those who cannot live at home for whatever reason. In the meantime we endeavour to find new ways to make our children and young people feel safe, happy, and leave with a clearer path to the future that they want for themselves.
One way in which we support our young people is through our art projects and creative facilities. Encouraging children to express themselves and channel their skills into beautiful pieces that we cherish and display around our centre. For example, this month we’ve been working with our children and young people to repaint our garden to help create a space which better reflects the loving environment we strive to deliver.
Days like these remind us of our mission here at PAN as we bring everyone in our care closer together. This way we can help our young people grow as individuals too by aiding their academic growth in any way that we can. Recently, we accompanied the students of the Baltazar Salazar Institute to the UCO (Eastern Cathololic University) to learn about their higher education facilities. Caring and protecting young people are some of our key initiatives, but helping them build a future for themselves beyond our foundation is key to our work.
Donations from people like you help our young people on their journey to a better future. Like with our new initiatives to combat the rising levels of teenage pregnancy, by educating our young people about sexual health they are given the choice to shape their own lives.
With your donations, we could rebuild our foster home to reach even more children and young people in Medellin who need our help. By following us on Instagram and Twitter you can also watch our foundation grow day by day so that you can see exactly how your donation helps us all at PAN grow.
From all of us at PAN.
