Colombian public education system has been in crisis for several years. Inequity has been a constant over the years especially for children without family. Orphan children in temporary protection usually have suffered trauma and as a result they have learning and cognitive problems. It is difficult to find elementary schools for young people with ages above 15. Public schools do not have special programs to help these orphan children.


This project will give funding to hire a professional group with specialized training that work closely with the orphan children in the school. The project will create a special classroom, to provide support for children with learning and cognitive disabilities. Learning Support will be provided to children with a special curriculum adaptation in this classroom. This methodology will allow them to acquire learning skills according to their capabilities in different areas of human development.

Long-Term Impact

This project will contribute to the development of the orphan children in temporary protection at Asociacion Vivamos. They will benefit from acquiring better access to education according to their requirements and abilities. This project will contribute to make sure orphan children have access to quality education in the school without age restriction and to allow them to complete their personal life project and contribute to their inclusion to society in an autonomous way.
