Challenge

A prolonged armed conflict has brought negative impacts to our country such as internal displacement (3.4 million, 48% are children) and violence; 46% of the population live in poverty (PND, 2010). The rate of chronic malnutrition is 13.2%; and only 35.3% of children have the chance to enroll in higher education, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty and vulnerability faced by Colombian children. With this project you help us support 50 homeless and abused Colombian children.

Solution

Superarse will provide shelter, and an after-school art and sports' based program for children who are abandoned and/or victims of domestic violence. Additionally, an interdisciplinary team of professionals works with the children to address their psychological issues, as well as with their families.The project will level the field for underserved Colombian youth.

Long-Term Impact

Through this project 50 Colombian children will receive psychological, mentoring support and like skills training, allowing them to realize their full potential and reducing the inequality gap. Taking them out of life on the street and the dangers of drug use and sexual abuse
