The business idea of Anyul

For young Colombians it is particularly difficult to start their careers. On the one hand, only a few can afford to study. On the other hand, they are particularly affected by unemployment. With the "Paza La Paz" programme, Horyzon and YMCA Colombia are therefore supporting young people in finding employment.

Anyul from Ciudad Bolívar, a poor district in the south of the capital Bogotá, underwent training in entrepreneurship in the Horyzon programme. She learned how to turn business ideas into a functioning small business with the help of a business plan. Her idea of acting as an animator at children's birthday parties and similar events met with great approval in the neighbourhood. Thanks to a small start-up capital, she was able to buy costumes and other materials.

Now Anyul makes the children in Ciudad Bolívar laugh and earns just enough to pay the tuition fees.

Every year around 1,500 young people take part in the "Paza La Paz" programme and around 10,000 people benefit indirectly from the programme. The Horyzon programme helps young people from the poorest backgrounds to find new life perspectives. The trained youth leaders independently carry out projects against violence, drugs and corruption.
