Summary

For 50 years, almost 6000 homeless children who have been abandoned or mistreated have been provided with shelter and care. These children, victims of domestic violence or sexual abuse, suffer from malnutrition and lack of care and love. Through this project, children have a home, care and psychosocial support providing them with healthy food, clothing, education and a program of life skills and above all, a lot of love, so they have a happy childhood.

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

We seek to provide home and much love, to children who are abandoned and / or victims of sexual abuse or domestic violence. In addition, an interdisciplinary team of professionals works with children and their families to deal with their psychological problems, providing them with housing, school supplies, school reinforcement, recreation, clothing, health, sports activities and psychosocial accompaniment for children and their families.

Long-Term Impact

Through this project, every year a group of Colombian children receive complete protection, psychological support, skills tutoring, which will allow them to realize their full potential and reduce the inequality gap. We seek to remove them from life on the street and the dangers of drug use and sexual abuse, providing them with a safe home covering their needs and children's rights. In 49 years of work we have welcomed almost 6000 children at risk.
