Summary

All the population have the privilege of studying at many countries, however in Colombia most people don't have the opportunity to continue their studies and thus are not able to improve their quality of life and help others. That's why we are a foundation that bets on those young leaders who want to improve their knowledge to help their communities and thus contribute to make this country a better place, where study and effort are a mean to achieve great things.

Challenge

In Colombia, out of 100 high school graduates, only 48 have access to universities, and 45% of those quit their studies. Only 6% of the students in universities correspond to master's and PhD students. Why does this happen? Because people don't have the economic resources to access a university or to continue their studies. As a consequence of this situation, we have absence of trained professionals with knowledge that requires the development of the country and help to bring it forward.

Solution

Help to build a better future together! With our partnerships with universities, companies and a lot of effort, we've managed to impact the lives of 384 students, who work very hard to carry out projects that have a real social impact in their communities. However, we still need all the possible help to continue putting our two cents to achieve a better country through education and the desire of our social leaders to go further.

Long-Term Impact

With your support we want to help 30 young people to continue studying and contributing to the future of our country, since they will be able to study at colombian universities with high quality standards, improve their knowledge and thus help their communities, especially those with low income. After 12 years working in education, we know that our scholarships represent a great impact in Colombia, and you can help us to continue with our purpose!
