The aim of this project is to provide shelter to 43 abandoned, abused and homeless Colombian children, ages 8 through 15, who are victims of armed conflict, mistreatment and malnutrition. Through this project we provide integral care including education, clothing, nutrition, health care, psychosocial support, carrier orientation, recreation, arts and sports during two months.
A prolonged armed conflict has brought negative impacts to our country such as 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 25 Colombian children abandoned, abused and homeless.
Superarse will provide shelter, education, health care, clothing, nutrition, recreation, arts and sports for children who have their rights violated (mistreatment, malnutrition, abandonment). Beneficiaries receive support from an interdisciplinary team that seeks to prevent the violation of rights of children who are at high-risk psychosocial situations. The project will contribute to reduce the poverty gap and inequality in order to offer them better opportunities for the future
Through this project 25 Colombian children will receive emotional and economic support that will contribute to enhance their quality of life and will provide better opportunities for the future. You can provide them the opportunity to transform their realities and stay away from drugs, prostitution, armed conflict, robbery, among others. These children and adolescents will be the citizens of tomorrow contributing to build a more equitable society.
