Dear Donors,

Some months has passed since our last monitoring trip of January to Colombia, but our joint work with our local partners has never stopped. Our local representatives as well as NGOs and International Organizations’ data witness that despite being an upper-middle-income country, Colombia has to face different challenges from a social and economic point of view.

Advancing the peace process is among the Government’s main priorities. The Country faces a complex humanitarian situation, exacerbated by multiple emergencies triggered by increasing violence from non-state armed groups (NSAGs), often overlapping with extreme weather events, a mixed migration crisis, economic shocks of high inflation, currency devaluation and pandemic’s residual impacts. According to UN report published in May 2023, Colombia’s 50-year-long armed conflict resulted in 7.8 million internally displaced people (IDPs), while the country has also been the largest host for migrants from Venezuela.

43% of the Colombians lives under the poverty line and children and teenagers are the most fragile part of the population. Adolescents face multiple dimensions of vulnerability that threaten long-lasting consequences for themselves, their prospects for survival and living healthy lives and for their communities if not addressed urgently. Violence is often part of their everyday life and high rates of violence against children are also attributed to cultural influences, limited understanding among caregivers of affective non-violent disciplinary methods, weak government systems, corruption, organized crimes, narco-economies and urban marginalization.

In this general contest, Aleimar supports Hogar San Jeronimo center in Tunja, where children and teenagers can phyco-social support, education and training in a safe place and leaded by trusted educators. There minors can also take part in recreational and educational activities like sport and workshops. This makes them feel part of a community and allow them to express themselves in a constructive way. Thanks to your support all this is possible!

Thank you!
