Challenge

Many rural and suburban children in Colombia face abandon, violence, and the lack of coverage for basic needs such as adequate education and nutrition. Under these conditions, children tend to drop out of school and get recruited by illegal armed groups.

Solution

The project focuses on helping every child to reach their appropriate grade level according to their age, and bringing 160 children back to school.

Long-Term Impact

This project is part of a comprehensive community intervention program, 'Vision en Familia', which is helping improve the quality of life of 5,000 extremely vulnerable families from the municipality of Santander, Colombia.
