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.

"We can not change the world but we can change small worlds to our surroundings"

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.

Life story

My name is Mat( no real name). I am 20 years old and I am the second of three brothers. I was under Protection Measure by the ICBF (Colombian Institute of Family Welfare) in the Externado Modality from February 2009 until December 2011, because my parents were street vendors, they went out to offer their products with my brother and sister and me, exposing ourselves to multiple risks in the streets of the city of Medellín.

During my childhood we lived very difficult situations in the home because my parents were also consumers of psychoactive substances. However, thanks to the support of the Overcoming Corporation, today my parents have been rehabilitated and our home is strengthened.

I finished my high school in 2014, but I have not been able to continue my studies because my older brother and I support our parents with the support of the home, I am currently working on a road improvement project.

I have skills for singing and musical composition and my great dream is to study Musical Production or Sound Engineering, to share with the youth of the world a message of encouragement and motivation to move forward overcoming all obstacles.

So today I want to invite you to believe in me and the possibility that there is a way to transform the lives of many young people who, like me, want to build a different society. You can be sure that with your contribution you will be helping me to make my dream come true!!!
