Throughout my childhood I felt alone and suffered abuse, but in SUPERARSE I found love, EDUCATION, friends and the inspiration to change my life.

I'm Andy, I was born in Medellín - COLOMBIA in 1995 without family. At 2 years old I was declared adoptable.

I went through several foster homes, where I suffered from bullying, hunger, and I learned the prohibitions for everything, I became a very rebellious child.

At the age of 14, he entered the SUPERARSE  boarding school. It was the best stage, the teachers were kind, the treatment was humane and fair, I lived enriching and happy experiences, I could learn, watch movies, read books and play, I could be a child. I fondly remember that the ladies in the kitchen treated me with love and respect. In Superarse, I had a friend, we were almost brothers. But he was adopted by a family in the US and left.

I was still very rebellious and one day a teacher advised me and told me: “Andy, your future only depends on you”. These words made me change, I became kind and respectful.

At the age of 17, thanks to SUPERARSE, I first studied Architectural Delineation and learned English. I was able to work and start to change my life

Now I study Space Design and Management at a private University in Medellín. I have bigger projections for the future

My story, although full of pain in childhood, managed to be positively transformed thanks to the SUPERARSE, which through its projects and programs helps many children and young people to study, have a family or support network, and fulfill our dreams.

With EDUCATION the lives of thousands of children and their future can be transformed. YOU CAN HELP THEM!

In Colombia, more than 40% of children suffer mistreatment, abuse or abandonment, of these, 70% of cases of sexual violence occur within the home.

For this reason, for 52 years, SUPERARSE has been serving children who have suffered violations, offering them opportunities to transform their lives, protection and prevention of their rights. 

Through a foster home, we serve 50 children between the ages of 8 and 18, for whom we cover all their needs such as housing, food, education, clothing and recreation.
We also provide day care to 100 boys and girls, whom we support half a day with food, school and psychological support for them and their families, thus avoiding risks of rights violations.

In the support program for young people, "Autonomous Life", we accompany more than 70 young people, through counseling and professional guidance focused on their technical, technological and professional training, in order to promote comprehensive development and autonomy as a central axis. for their lives.

              ¡CONTRIBUTE TODAY AND TRANSFORM A LIFE!

Every day there are more children at risk, who need help to survive, to feed themselves or to get out of abuse.

In SUPERARSE, during the last 5 years we have been able to increase the number of protected children. In 2017 we attended 93 children in each cycle. In 2021, we attended 150 children in each cycle. Now we are very close to being able to serve 200 children daily.

   YOUR HELP IS NEEDED TO ACHIEVE IT!

We already have the second foster home finished, now we are very close to being able to start buying beds, mattresses, blankets, dining room furniture, crockery, kitchen implements, educational and recreational material, we are also going to buy a television and chairs for the living room study. We already have computers and some games. At SUPERARSE we are happy and optimistic that very soon we will have everything ready to receive the children and be able to start transforming their future.

     Our goal is AUGUST 2022.

During all these years we have helped save more than 13,000 lives that seemed lost, boys and girls living in poverty, children without food, homeless children, children on the verge of suicide due to abuse received, to prevent teenage pregnancies and to build successful lives.

With the Covid19 pandemic we saw that although we continue to work, the need to protect children in Colombia has grown, family abuse, sexual abuse, hunger and other ills in low-income families have grown, putting the lives of thousands of children at risk. kids.

That is why we are now growing, with the construction of a new boarding school, which will allow us to protect 50 more children each year.

We are about to finish the construction, so that this dream of having a foster home for more abandoned or abused children becomes a reality.

Now we need to buy everything necessary to furnish the home, to receive more children at risk

We need to buy 50 beds, with mattresses, blankets, pillows and clothes.
Dining tables and chairs where the 50 children can enjoy their food
Implements for cooking and food preparation.
Computers and furniture for the study room.
1 television for children's moments of rest
Board games, toys, books and school supplies for everyone.
In short, everything necessary to be able to equip this new foster home.

In SUPERARSE we focus on jointly finding the factors that can restore smiles and the natural development of children and adolescents who have suffered abuse, through individual, group and family intervention strategies, mobilizing and managing support , through the National Family Welfare System and institutional networks, to gain access to goods and services that improve living conditions and allow renewing the exercise of the natural functions of the family.

Our interventions and accompaniment seek to reduce vulnerability factors and strengthen affective ties between children and the different members of the family, with permanent psychosocial care, which allows resolving unresolved problems in the life history of children and adolescents, their environment and support networks.

We develop projects to reduce the impact of the violation of rights or the poor socioeconomic living conditions of the population, aligning ourselves in each project with one or more of the SDGs proposed on the world agenda, we mainly work on reducing poverty, zero hunger, quality education, reduction of inequalities, peace and solid institutions.

Let's continue TOGETHER contributing to return more smiles to the faces of children in Colombia and the world!
