Your contribution will change the life of these small worlds !!!

We are happy because during this year we have been able to raise more children, now there are 100, children who can come every day to the Corporation Superarse and receive care and attention after school. Avoiding the risks to which they are exposed due to their living conditions, such as: street hazards, drugs, child labor, sexual abuse, malnutrition or poor nutrition and others.

Every day, the children who attend find a lot of love and perform activities such as:
Pedagogical support and school reinforcement.
Monitoring and individual work for each child at the psychosocial level according to their particular needs.
Actions to promote health and disease prevention, promotion of sexual and reproductive health, prevention of alcohol and psychoactive substances, nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits.
Strengthening life skills: emphasizing the development of coping skills, decision making, critical thinking and autonomy to prevent recidivism in self-destructive behaviors
Stimulation activities and development of skills, abilities and vocational, sports and artistic interests of each child or adolescent.
Opportunities for cultural, sports and recreational development for the construction of meaning and consolidation of their life projects
Advice to the family or supportive link network to give continuity to all these processes from home.

At this end of the year we look forward to YOUR SUPPORT, to continue fulfilling the dream of changing the lives of many children in Colombia !!!

In Medellin-Colombia 23% of the population are children (approximately 572,000), but unfortunately due to the socioeconomic conditions of many sectors of the city, many of them are sadly faced with different types of abuse.

Physical abuse and sexual abuse are the most frequent. However, this figure also includes psychological abuse and neglect, a form of violence to which many of the children are exposed in their own homes and which is configured when their parents or caregivers do not provide the minimum conditions for their well-being.


In these situations, we call people like you, who can help us ensure the protection of children with contributions that will become better opportunities for them.


The number of children who need help to prevent this type of situation grows more and more, that is why in the Corporación Superarse, we expanded and as of August 1 we have 30 more children.


Now we will treat 80 children in the externship modality, who will receive care, love, food, school support, psychosocial support, recreation, health, guidance to families and everything necessary to keep their children's dreams alive and grow as healthy beings. contribute to society.

 

HELP US TO HELP THEM !!!

In the Corporación SUPERARSE, we work and defend the rights of children, at the same time we work educating their families to protect those rights. Many of the mothers attend these trainings, always looking for the best for their children, although for many of them it is not easy, since they are also sometimes "victims" and their rights are violated, due to the difficult socioeconomic situation in the they who live.

In this special month, our children pay homage to their mothers, who despite facing difficult life situations, always strive for them.

All mothers have something special, although due to their difficulties, because they do not participate in the labor market and do not always have their own income, they live in conditions of poverty at the family level and often have less decision-making power over the destination of the resources of the family. home. This puts them in a position of helplessness and if they do not have the support of a partner, or they become widows and become heads of household facing alone,  family economic needs, in many cases without preparation, without study and without experience to get a quality job and well paid.

This means that most of the children who attend La Corporacion Superarse experience this type of family, however for them there is no better hug and a more magical formula than that of their mothers, who cure everything, in the moments of illness and sadness.

That is why in this month we recognize those efforts, sometimes less evident than other times, but convinced that the hand of the Corporación SUPERARSE we can help them that their children and themselves can get ahead.

In the month of April and as part of the strengthening of the mothers and grandmothers of the children, we began to invite them to an easy cooking class, teaching them the importance of varying the food and taking advantage of the harvest products.

We invite you this month to destine these contributions to those moms that although in unfavorable conditions, never stop fighting for their children!

Andy's story (no real name)


"Music, art and theater My life"

I was born in the city of Medellín, I am 12 years old, I currently live with my mother, my father lives in the center of the city and sells fruits, with him I have a very good relationship even though my parents separated more than 4 years ago, but with both I share and I love them very much.
I am in La Corporacion Superarse for several years, because my parents have no one to accompany me in my free time before or after my school, before I stayed for long periods of time with my dad in the street or in several public places in the center of the city as parks and libraries, which is dangerous for me.
I really like music and theater, I have participated in cultural presentations in different acts and activities with my classmates. Today I want to give infinite thanks to Superarse by giving me the opportunity to strengthen my tastes and skills in music and theater, the applause on stage are very rewarding and the support of teachers to make me a better child every day is invaluable ...
Today I want all the people who read my story to continue supporting us in the fulfillment of our dreams and that we can fulfill our goals.

History of Life

Hello, my name is Alex (no real name) and thanks to your contributions, today my reality is very different from my past.


I was born in March 2005, but my biological parents abandoned me, they had many problems, such as drug addiction and lived on the street, I was also born with a disease called syphilis, I still need treatment today, and as a consequence I suffer from kidney failure.
An aunt and her husband's have always taken care of me, they became my parents, supporting me in different situations, due to diagnoses such as schizophrenia and kidney failure, the health center and the visit to doctors have become part of of my life, despite all the effort that my parents (uncles) have made to keep me in good health and get ahead, conditions such as: their advanced age, lack of money and place of residence, my father took me with him to work in the buses, to get away from the problems of the street in my neighborhood, besides the bullying of which I was a victim in my school.
After 12 years between hospitals, buses from the city center and many medications, we found ourselves with the Corporación Superarse, where we had the opportunity to learn about the service and support that they could give to a child like me and my whole family, since then, I have been able to return to school again, leaving my father with the tranquility of finding me in a safe space and so he has the opportunity to work more easily, today thanks to this place I have created links with boys and girls of my age, generating the development of my skills, and the reflection, that in spite of so many challenges that life has put me, the desire to build a future where I am the protagonist, is being created from this, my new present.
I give infinite thanks to the Corporation Overcome where I receive love, support and understanding and where my parents are calm because I am in a place where I guarantee and watch over my rights ..

This year in Corporacion Superarse....
