The armed violence and precariousness of the countryside in Colombia displaces millions of people to the periphery of southern Bogota. The uprooting, apathy and social unhope of these families, leads children to abandon schools and work on the street, and even fall into prostitution, crime or armed groups. The Community Centers provide minors (and families) with educational support, recreational spaces and psychosocial assessment, leading to opportunities of positive projection.
Families access Community Centers through love barters, where children in vulnerable or displaced condition are provided with School Kits, special attention paid to their needs at the library (homework support and school reinforcement), computer room (digitation training, office softwares), cultural activities (theater, cinema), artistic and sports workshops (dance, soccer, etc.) personal or family group psychosocial assessment therapy sessions, in search of the construction of new life projects
The project will provide the basis for 150 children and their families to develop their skills and abilities, removing them from poverty and exclusion, leading to opportunities to project themselves and become citizens with full participation in the social, economic and cultural development of the Country.
