Summary

In Colombia, thousands of children in vulnerable conditions are prone to drop out of school. The story of Eneidys is common in regions affected by violence and conflict. With this project, we offer access to special education for children like her who have been away from school for several years. They are accompanied by inspiring educators, who follow comprehensive capacity development programs and receive pedagogical materials in their schools to help students reach their full potential.

Challenge

Out of every 100 children who start school in Colombia, only 44 finish secondary education. Every year thousands of children are left behind, becoming individuals at high-risk of falling into child labor, drug consumption, delinquency or teenage pregnancy. Our project offers yearly a new opportunity to 10,000 students who want to return to school and need special support in Atlantico, Valle del Cauca and Antioquia. This project transforms the future of young people into a promising one. Join us!

Solution

Our project aims at improving access to quality education across the country for children who are out of the school system. In order to achieve this goal, we train teachers and donate pedagogical materials to schools. Every year, we benefit around 10,000 students who need special support to restart their educational journey and reach their life goals. The program has proved great efficiency, demanding an investment of $50 USD to help one student during a complete school year.

Long-Term Impact

This project offers children and young people a new opportunity to succeed in life through education. The story of Anthony Zambrano, a former participant of the initiative, represents a great example of success. When he was a young kid, he had a new chance to attend school and was inspired by his teachers. He bacame a gold medalist in the 400m competition at Doha 2019. Just like him, thousands of students are inspired every year to pursue their dreams and are encouraged to graduate from school.
