In Colombia 46% of the population lives in poverty.Every day the number of children who are sexually abused,abandoned,who suffer violence,malnutrition or child labor forced to live in extreme poverty,this added to a deficient public education and the increase in violent deaths,has the country above IRAQ and IRAN, in a tragic situation for the children. Any blow is terribly humiliating for any human being,however every day we have more children with multiple fractures, burns and seriously injured
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, education, recreation, health, sports activities and psychosocial support for children and their families, guaranteeing children's rights and the construction of their life projects for a better future. A child just do not die from preventable causes, one to stop working, one that goes back to school, it is worth.
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.
