BOGOTA: OPPORTUNITIES FOR 120 CHILDREN & YOUNGTERS

BOGOTÁ: OPPORTUNITIES FOR 120 CHILDREN & YOUNGTERS

By Moises Pedraza – Director Fundación ZUÁ

We want to present to our friends who are GlobalGiving donors, some of the most significant achievements of the year 2022 at the Zuá Foundation

An important step was the consolidation of the Bosa headquarters, another sector of Bogotá, marked by the presence of many families in situations of extreme poverty, with unsatisfied basic needs, with serious malnutrition problems, and most of them out of school. Displaced national population and another part of immigrants from Venezuela, who, due to their condition, frequently move from one town to another. This new headquarters is located at Carrera 87P n.79D-05 south, Bosa San Bernardino. In this place, we rented a 6 x 12 meters room.

This headquarter replicate the model of the Patio Bonito headquarters, a model that has been developed during the 20 years of work at that headquarters, through which children between the ages of 5 and 17 are served. Since most of these children do not attend school because there is no space. Nevertheless, at the Foundation they are taught to read and write, they are taught basic mathematical operations, as well as rules of coexistence, teamwork, and skills for life. Those who come in the morning shift are given breakfast and lunch and those who come in the afternoon shift are given lunch and snacks in the afternoon shift. The full quota is 36 girls and boys, half attend in the morning, the other half in the afternoon

The program is directed by a coordinator and by 2 tutors in the morning and another 2 in the afternoon, who study at the university in the morning, thanks to the fact that the Foundation pays their university fees.

At the Patio Bonito headquarters, the Zuá Foundation assisted more than 160 children between January and December who received care to help them carry out their homework, school reinforcement, music and theater workshops, breakfast and lunch in the morning, and lunch and snacks in the afternoon shift

The mother training program was also consolidated, through the School for Parents, with a team of volunteer professionals, and up to now it has been the most successful strategy to reach mothers and guide them in the difficult task of educating their children.

It was a transcendental year for many of the girls, boys, and young people, because thanks to the contribution of GlobalGiving donors they are receiving timely attention, many thanks to those who believe in what we do and support us.

Many more girls and boys need our help, however, we cannot do it without resources, which is why we ask other people for their support to do it.

Thousands of thanks, your support united with others allow in this year 2022 to promote the dreams of these children, boys, and young people.

 

BOGOTÁ: OPPORTUNITIES FOR 120 CHILDREN & YOUNGTERS

By Moises Pedraza – Director Fundación ZUÁ

Queremos presentar a nuestros amigos que donantes de GlobalGiving, algunos de los logros más significativos del año 2022 en la Fundación Zuá

Un paso importante fue la consolidación de la sede de Bosa, otro sector de Bogotá, marcado por la presencia de muchas familias en situación de extrema pobreza, con necesidades básicas insatisfechas, con serios problemas de desnutrición y la mayoría de ellos desescolarizados. Población nacional desplazada y otra parte inmigrantes de Venezuela, que por su condición se muda con frecuencia de ciudad y de localidad.  Esta nueva sede está ubicada en la Carrera 87P n.79D-05 sur, Bosa San Bernardino.  

En esta sede se replica el modelo de la sede de Patio Bonito, modelo que se ha desarrollado durante los 20 años de trabajo en aquella sede, mediante el cual se atiende a niños entre los 5 y los 17 años.  El cupo completo es de 40 niñas y niños, la mitad asiste en la mañana, la otra mitad en la tarde. A estos niños, dado que la mayoría no asiste a la escuela porque no hay cupo, en la Fundación se les enseña a leer, a escribir, se les enseñan las operaciones matemáticas básicas, además de normas de convivencia, de trabajo en equipo y habilidades para la vida.  A los que vienen en la jornada de la mañana se les da el desayuno y almuerzo y a los de la jornada de la tarde se les da almuerzo y refrigerio en la jornada de la tarde.

El programa es dirigido por una coordinadora y por 2 tutores en la mañana y otros 2 en la tarde, quienes en la mañana estudian en la universidad, gracias a que la Fundación les paga sus matrículas universitarias.

En la sede de Patio Bonito atendimos la Fundación Zuá más de 160 niños entre enero y diciembre quienes recibieron atención en ayuda en la realización de sus tareas, refuerzo escolar talleres en música y teatro, desayuno y almuerzo jornada de la mañana y almuerzo y refrigerio en la jornada de la tarde

Se consolidó también el programa de formación de mamás, mediante la Escuela de Padres, con un equipo de profesionales voluntarias y hasta el momento ha sido la estrategia más exitosa para lograr llegar a las mamás y guiarlas en la difícil tarea de educar a sus hijos.

Fue un año trascendental para muchas de las niñas, niños y jóvenes, pues gracias al aporte de los donantes de GlobalGiving van teniendo atención oportuna, muchas gracias a quienes creen en lo que hacemos y nos apoyan.

Muchas mas niñas y niños necesitan nuestra ayuda, sin embargo no lo podemos hacer sin recursos, por lo cual solicitamos a otras personas su apoyo para hacerlo.  

Miles de gracias, sus apoyos unidos con otros permiten en este año 2022 impulsar los sueños de estas niños, niños y jóvenes.
