Limitations in higher education can condemn the future of young people in Colombia, which is why we can not rest from seeking greater spaces and opportunities for young people without economic resources to move forward and to participate in a country that progresses.

In the Corporación Superarse we work so that the young people we support despite not having money or study possibilities, achieve their dreams of being professionals and having a good job or having their own company.

Promoting equal access to education between men and women affects the development and positive growth of a country in terms of wealth and welfare of its society. In recent years we have made possible the study dream of almost 40 young people who are on their way to becoming professionals or are already working.

To continue and to be younger, we need a lot of support, we need many donations, because although we know that education is expensive we do not falter in the dream of giving education to break the circles of poverty in which they and their families were born.

Juan (not real name) is a young man of 19 years who has lived difficult situations since he was a child, has a slight cognitive discapity but can stand on his own. For a while he lived in the street because he was abandoned by his family, at age 9 he lived in the boarding school for abandoned children of the Corporación Superarse, he studied in some specialized centers for people with disabilities and managed to finish school. But now he does not have the resources to continue higher education or a technology, to be able to be employed and to be a person who can have an income to live independently and get ahead on his own.

Through this project we seek economic contributions to pay for the study of this young person and continue to support him to get ahead in life and break the circle of poverty in which he was born and has lived.

In the Corporación Superarse, we have the challenge of providing an initial education of quality, inclusive, equitable and that takes into account the ethnic, cultural and social diversity of the country. An education that allows all children, regardless of the context in which they live, to find enriched educational spaces based on the effective and intelligent accompaniment of adults with the time shared in everyday life. Family, community or institutional spaces in which children learn with play, art, literature, creativity and movement, as fundamental means for their development. 

Help us to help them, with your contribution we will achieve it.

The support and accompaniment of adolescents and young people in the lines of training and employability continues to be strengthened. In the course of the first quarter, 4 young people applied to a call of the company INCONTACTO with prioritization for vulnerable population.

In addition to the above, 4 young people enrolled in the process with Sapiencia (program of the mayor's office), through which they will participate for a grant for technological studies.

Accompaniment was done to several young people to complete their high school studies and can enter the university or other higher education that leads to generate opportunities for their future.

This May, our young people join the celebration of Mother's Day, as well as the children of the Corporación Superarse modalities, some of our girls are now young mothers, excited to create a different future for their babies .

I invite you to contribute with the education of these young mothers, so that they change not only their lives, but also that of their families through higher education that leads them to be successful entrepreneurs or professionals!!!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! We need $ 4,000 to study.

This project seeks to accompany and contribute resources to the youth of the Corporación Superarse for their higher education. In Colombia, it is very difficult and expensive to enter the University and for these young people with low economic resources, it becomes even more difficult. That is why we seek economic support to access university education and formal employment.

Currently we have applications from 4 young people who have expressed their interest to start their higher education in the following areas: Business Administration, Social Communication and Journalism, Musical Production and Motorcycle Mechanics. To help them, we need to raise $ 4,000 in a couple of months.

For this, steps are taken associated with the search for sponsors and / or economic resources that facilitate the financing of these academic processes, as well as the identification of possible scholarships or agreements with universities or other institutions of higher education.

We also want to tell you that other young people are also studying, who are already accompanied and collaborate economically, so that they achieve the dream of being professionals.

1 student in Computer Engineering (4th semester)
1 student in Psychology (5th semester)
2 young people, studying Business Administration (5th semester)
1 young person in Technician in Operation of Events (3rd semester)
1 young man who starts training in Control Engineering at the National University
1 young person advancing secondary school, During 2018 will conduct studies corresponding to 10th and 11th grade

For all this we count on your collaboration, you can make a difference so that they break the circle of poverty in which they have grown.
