In this Project report we want to share with you some achievements in different areas: recreation academic performance, nutrition and family training; they would be impossible without your help and support.

Recreation and sports:

In the recreational area we had a trip to DIVERCITY, one of the most recognized theme attractions for children in Colombia, where they get to role play in many areas (bankers, doctors, fathers…). The children also had the chance to go to the stadium and witness the football game between two popular Colombian teams: Nacional from Medellín and Junior from Barranquilla.

One of our cultural activities of this period was a walk throughout important places in the city: San Ignacio Church, Berrio park, a subway station and an important monument built to Rodrigo Arenas Betancur.

Furthermore, the children participated in the activity “Sports makes us friends” enjoying different sports and values related to the importance of friendship.

Academic performance and nutrition:

We already got the results from the second academic period of the year, these reports presents big achievements in all the children, all of them passed with great grades their second period.

The projects “Exploring the web” and “Promotion of reading” strengthen their motivation for computers and books.

Activities with Families:

Educational workshops were developed with the participation of families regarding the following subjects: Economics for the family, Healthy nutrition, Prevention of illness and promotion of health

Families elected their candidate for the institutional government; this is an important activity that involves families in the process of restitution of rights of their children

Pedagogical activities:

Within the project “Building with my hands”, the children developed different art instruments such as origami flowers and birds. These products were given to their mothers as part of the celebration of the mother’s day

The football world cup allowed multiple activities among the children which enhanced their patriotism and interest in the different cultures of the participant countries.

 

14 year old teenager Johan Sebastian Ferraro shares with us the following testimony:

“I dream with becoming a leader that can influence the people in Colombia that are most in need. The most important thing is to always carry Superarse in my heart and all the people who support my mother”

Once again, thank you for believing in our cause, thanks to you, these children dream and build paths of hope and happiness.

We would like to share with you our recent accomplishments regarding the project “Give shelter to 25 homeless Colombian children”, they would be impossible without your support and compromise.

The Colombian Institute of Family Welfare (ICBF), is the entity in Colombia dedicated to protect all the families, children and adolescents. It is the organization that sets standards for all charities who work in the sector. ICBF officials visit us twice a year to check the quality of the services we offer, on April 7th we received the first visit of the year and the results were excellent.

After evaluating several variables of the service offered to the children, we obtained an overall score of 99.22%, which reflects an optimal quality in the services we provide to our beneficiaries.

“With regard to the protection of the beneficiaries, the processes of the institution are in line with the process of restoration of rights. They exceed expectations in terms of spaces, institutional dynamics, leisure and recreational activities, nutrition, and protection of children. Dialoguing with the beneficiaries, we see that they are adapted and satisfied with the institutional dynamic, motivated to continue in the process, expressive and open, reflecting the satisfactory development of skills, values and competencies at the individual and social level” (ICBF, 2014)

Here are some quantitative aspects evaluated in their visit:

  •          Affiliation to the Colombian health system (Sistema General de Seguridad Social en Salud): 10/10
  •          Medical Attention: 10/10
  •          Education: 10/10
  •          Occupational activities: 10/10
  •          Attention and support for families and relatives: 10/10
  •          Life Project: 10/10
  •          Participation: 10/10
  •          Satisfaction survey applied to beneficiaries: 10/10
  •          Perception of the quality of the service: 10/10
  •          Human resources: 10/10
  •          Nutritional services: 10/10

“I feel very happy in Superarse, it is my second family, it is very important as my mom, in the study I'm going very well and it is because they help me with my homework. Encounters with my family on Fridays are the best, my mom always comes with my little brothers and we are together, someday I will return to be with them but I will never forget Superarse” (Jhon Alejandro Cardona, 9 years, beneficiary)

Finally, we would like to share with you, other activities and accomplishments from this period:

• Children enjoyed recreational activities to theme parks (Parque de las aguas, Parque explora), trips to theatre and the football stadium.

• They achieved all the objectives of the first academic period, the educational institutions highlighted their effort and dedication.

• We established the annual spiritual training plan, in which 12 children will receive first communion and 9 will receive confirmation. The spiritual preparation will take place every Sunday at the headquarters of Superarse.

• The representative of governance was elected in a democratic exercise that seeks to promote the values of participation and citizenship

These results would be impossible without your constant support, it is for this reason that once again we want to sincerely thank you and invite you to continue this exiting path with us, with the dream and conviction that these children will have greater opportunities to achieve their life projects.
