Rescuing Dreams in Rural Colombia - Rescatando suenos en la Colombia rural

Through ESCALA, we have tirelessly worked to address the growing school dropout crisis in the country, and the results are promising. As we share this story of transformation, we encourage our donors to continue supporting our mission to provide educational opportunities to rural students in Colombia.

In the year 2023, Colombia faced a growing school dropout crisis that affected over 400,000 children nationwide. In this context, ESCALA emerged as a valuable tool to keep students in school and offer them a future full of possibilities.

We continue our work, implementing our program for over 2,200 students in rural schools across Colombia. We have been their source of inspiration, mentorship, and essential educational resources.

More children are staying in school and completing their studies. They have had access to quality educational resources, enriching extracurricular activities, and emotional support that has improved their educational experience and motivation.

Through the ESCALA program, we have witnessed inspiring stories of students overcoming obstacles and achieving their educational goals. From children who were once at risk of dropping out to young individuals now dreaming of a more promising future, these stories demonstrate how education can change lives.

Despite our achievements, the work is far from finished. School dropout remains a challenge in Colombia, and we are determined to continue our mission. To achieve this, we need the constant support of our donors.

Your donations can make a difference by allowing us to continue providing educational opportunities to rural students in Colombia. Together, we can ensure that every child has the chance for a better future through education.

We are changing lives and building a brighter future for Colombia through education.

Thank you for your ongoing support and for being part of this success story.

Testimonial:

"Today, I want to share my experience with the Barco Foundation. Last year, I wanted to leave school; I didn't want to study anymore because I didn't have the income or the necessary support I needed. But when the Barco Foundation arrived, they helped me prosper mentally and physically. They helped me with my rabbit farming project, and I now have better prospects for my future. I am now in grade 11 and want to continue with my project as a life goal."

 I support young kids in rural Colombia trough ESCALA Program to finish their education for more and better opportunities. https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/improving-the-rural-education-for-262-students/

A través de ESCALA, hemos trabajado incansablemente para abordar la creciente deserción escolar en el país, y los resultados son prometedores. A medida que compartimos esta historia de transformación, alentamos a nuestros donantes a continuar apoyando nuestra misión de brindar oportunidades educativas a los estudiantes rurales de Colombia.

En el año 2023, Colombia se enfrentó a una creciente crisis de deserción escolar que afectó a más de 400,000 niños en todo el país. En este contexto ESCALA se convierte en una herramienta valiosa para mantener a los estudiantes en la escuela y ofrecerles un futuro lleno de posibilidades.

Continuamos con nuestra labor implementado nuestro programa en más de 2,200 estudiantes en escuelas rurales de Colombia. Hemos sido su fuente de inspiración, mentoría y recursos educativos esenciales.

Más niños están permaneciendo en la escuela y completando sus estudios. Han tenido acceso a recursos educativos de calidad, actividades extracurriculares enriquecedoras y apoyo emocional que han mejorado su experiencia educativa y su motivación.

A través del programa ESCALA, hemos visto historias inspiradoras de estudiantes que han superado obstáculos y alcanzado sus metas educativas. Desde niños que antes estaban en riesgo de abandonar la escuela hasta jóvenes que ahora sueñan con un futuro más prometedor, estas historias son historias que nos muestran cómo la educación puede cambiar vidas.

A pesar de nuestros logros, el trabajo está lejos de estar terminado. La deserción escolar sigue siendo un desafío en Colombia, y tenemos la determinación de continuar nuestra misión. Para lograrlo, necesitamos el apoyo constante de nuestros donantes.

Sus donaciones pueden marcar la diferencia al permitir que continuemos brindando oportunidades educativas a los estudiantes rurales de Colombia. Juntos, podemos asegurarnos de que cada niño tenga la oportunidad de un mejor futuro a través de la educación.

Estamos cambiando vidas y construyendo un futuro mejor para Colombia a través de la educación.

Gracias por tu continuo apoyo y por ser parte de esta historia de éxito.

Testimonio:

“Hoy les vengo a compartir mi experiencia con la Fundación Barco, el año pasado yo quería salir de la institución, no quería estudiar más porque no tenía los ingresos ni el apoyo necesario que necesitaba pero, cuando llegó la Fundación Barco, me ayudaron a prosperar mentalmente y físicamente, ellos en lo físico, fue en el proyecto y mentalmente porque me dieron un motivo a seguir. Ellos me ayudaron con mi proyecto de cunicultura, y tengo unas mejores inversiones para mi futuro ahora. Ya estoy en grado 11 y quiero seguir con mi proyecto como un proyecto de vida”
