In Colombia, 46% of the population lives in poverty, lack of education, armed conflict, internal displacement and violence, mainly affects children; The chronic malnutrition rate is 13% and less than 30% of young people have the opportunity to access higher education, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty and vulnerability faced by Colombian children. With this project, it supports abused or homeless children, providing them everything they need to grow up healthy.
It seeks to provide home, love and support to abandoned children or victims of sexual abuse or violence, providing them with housing, food, clothing, school supplies, school reinforcement, recreation, health, sports activities and psychosocial support for children and their families, guaranteeing children's rights and the construction of their life projects, with activities of development of skills, abilities and vocational, sporting and artistic interests of each child.
Every year many children receive full protection, psychological support, life skills tutoring that will allow them to have education and develop their potential to reduce the inequality gap in which they live. We seek to remove them from the dangers of street life, drugs and sexual abuse, providing them with a safe home and opportunities to develop their life projects with education. In 50 years of work, we have welcomed almost 6000 children at risk guaranteeing their rights.
