Project Report | Nov 8, 2022
Let's support Hogar San Jeronimo!

By Francesca Pellegatta | Junior Project Manager

Dear Donor,

our activities in Colombia never stop despite the difficult economic, social and political situation of the Country. Our local representatives report that inflation has risen by 11% in just one year in particular in the food and housing sector and unemployment has reached the highest level of the last five years. The most penalized by this working crisis are the informal workers and most of them are the parents of the families that we support. Social protection is in first place for the new president Gustavo Petro who promotes a “total peace” with the groups of dissidents that could receive benefits (like for example the reduction of the custodial sentence if they submit to justice). All the armed groups involved in the conflict are connected to the drug trafficking according to security and governmental sources. The Colombian government is now working for a plan for farmers in order to voluntary eradicate coca crops, the main ingredient of cocaine, in favor of new crops and investments in infrastructure, education and health.

In order to ensure more safety to our children, the priorities that we want to establish for this school year are related to school and to the after-school support. Often the houses in which our families supported live are located in risky neighborhoods and it is important to guarantee a safe space where our children can spend their afternoons far from the street. For these reasons, we would like to increase our support to the center Hogar San Jeronimo in Tunja, where boys and girls are hosted during the day before and after the school lessons. Here we can provide one meal per day, homework support and professional courses though which the recipients can learn artisanal jobs (like woodworker and electrician). This represents an opportunity for the future of all the boys and girls supported and that’s why your help is so fundamental!

Thank you!
