The armed conflict and the pandemic in Colombia add to the factors that prevent millions of children and young people from enrolling in school. In our country, they are twice as likely to never attend school or university, increasing the unemployment rate and poverty.

During 10 years with the development of this project, more than 200 young people have managed to enter university, graduate studies, get formal jobs and other objectives, to transform their lives in poverty.

20 young people from the program attend the UNIVERSITY, studying a Technical, Technological or Professional program such as Nursing, Business Administration, Bacteriology, Social Communication, Journalism, Social Work, customer service, systems engineering, Psychology and Musical Informatics and others.

3 more young people are studying Postgraduate studies.

48 young people are already professionals or have studies that have allowed them to be formally employed

All of them have received support from the Corporacion Superarse, with tuition and daily support payments, internet access, vocational guidance, life skills courses and psychosocial support, which is allowing them.

TRANSFORM LIFE, thanks to your support.

Every year 300,000 Colombians, mostly from the poorest families, finish high school and have no chance of entering university.

In our country only 33 percent of children under 6 years of age receive initial education. Of every 100 who enter primary school, only 39 finish high school. It is a harsh reality that to receive quality education in Colombia, you have to be rich, powerful, have influences and contacts.

This is why in SUPERARSE, we have proposed to help young people with few opportunities to enter the University, but we also have the objective of helping to reduce student desertion, improve the quality of basic education, which is increasingly obsolete and it produces much of the problems of higher education.


More and more young people are unable or unwilling to continue their studies after high school, leading to extremely high rates of informal employment.

All citizens, businessmen and the Government must take these challenges seriously. If we continue down this path, the possibilities in Colombia of finding peace, equity and development will be increasingly remote.

We appreciate all these supports, which CREATE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE WITHOUT RESOURCES. We invite you to continue accompanying them

The Project in 2020 had a growth of Sponsors who made monthly or semester contributions contributing to the payment of monthly payments and entrance to the university of 10 Young people.

In support of volunteer professionals, academic consultancies in different areas were managed for all our young students.

With the support of companies, sponsors and scholarship management, we were able to support studies of more than 19 young people in different universities, another 30 young people took short courses in life skills with the support of KUEPA, FundaciónJuguemos en el Bosque, Fundación Sueños and Footprints and Moravian Cultural Center. 2 young women graduated in Business Administration and Systems Technology and both are already linked to work, with 7 more young people who managed to get a job thanks to the aid managed by the Corporacion Superarse

By linking new sponsors, financial support for young people who are studying was strengthened, managing to subsidize payments for internet services, loans of laptops to facilitate their virtual study process and food support, allowing our young people not to drop out of their processes academics.

Testimony of a girl who has grown up under the care of Superarse, with her brother, because her mother works all day and could not take care of them. Now she is in the process of entering a Private University and beginning her professionalization process to change her future.



Before beneficiary of the External Modality

Age: 16 Years

For me, the SUPERARSE has been very important in my life, when I was 8 years old I entered the external modality since my mother could not take care of us because she had to work, in all that time I received love and more than all learning from the corporation , since they taught us things such as not to use drugs, sex education and other very important issues in the life of a child.

Now I am in the Autonomous Life Program I have received a lot of support from the Corporation thanks to them I will be able to study at a very good university and I will be able to fulfill my dreams as a professional, they never abandon us, they continue to support us so that we achieve what we want.


Like Isabel, more than 30 young people can study and become professionals, thanks to your support.

There are many changes that we live in this time of pandemic, among all this, the way of receiving education is one of the things that changed the most for children, youth and adults. And although now in order to communicate with their teachers and classmates, all our young people need a computer, most of them, due to their living conditions in poverty, do not have one, this has caused demotivation and delays in their studies. For this reason we are in a special campaign of donations to turn the dream of these young people into a reality, to be able to give them a computer so that they can continue building their life project and with education, to ensure a successful future, this is also our dream to overcome.

With the support of all of you, our donors, we seek to fulfill all these dreams so that the education of more than 40 young people in university, is easier, a reality and they do not renounce their objective, for lack of this type of tools. We have already delivered some and we need to continue fulfilling them.
