Dear Donor,

we are glad to share with you good news from Colombia! Last January Aleimar Country Representatives Andrea and Rosanna with the volunteer Teresa finally came back to Colombia for the periodic monitoring trip. During this two-week trip, they had the opportunity to visit all the projects that Aleimar support in Colombia and in particular San Jeronimo project in Tunja.

In Tunja high poverty rate joins together with incredibly high levels of domestic violence and also to the worrying number of children that are forced to spend whole days on the street without care and protection. The state of abandonment in which they live makes them victims of violence, abuses, exploitation and deletes development opportunities for their future.

In Hogar San Jeronimo, the Centre managed by Somaschi Fathers, 40 children and teenagers that come from the harsh reality of the road receive support. Together with pedagogical and educative activities, several workshops are foreseen: children and teenagers can join carpentry and electronics lessons and the mothers of the children helped can take part in a cutting and sewing course.

These workshops allow young students to learn a profession and to easily find a job, while for the children the courses are an expedient that make them able to overcome the trauma experienced or to prevent social disadvantage.

Your support is really fundamental and it is the heart of all our activities!

Thank you from Aleimar and from the young Colombian participants!
