In Tunja the serious poverty is combined with an incredibly high level of domestic violence against women and the worrying number of children who are forced to spend whole days on the street, in the absence of care and protection. Their loneliness sets them to be helpless victims of acts of violence, sexual abuse, exploitation or prostitution, denying them the right to go to school and grow up in a peaceful environment.


The Hogar San Jeronimo project, managed by the Chierici Somaschi, thus wants to restore hope to these children and teenagers, providing psycho-social support and ensuring their education and training. Alongside the pedagogical and educational activities, there are different courses in carpentry and electronics, and, furthermore, there is a cutting and sewing course for some of the mothers of the supported children.

Long-Term Impact

40 children will be able to improve their psycho-physical and social conditions, develop greater confidence in their abilities and acquire professional skills useful for their entry into the world of work. In addition, family relationships will be strengthened and trained mothers will be able to find a job more easily.
