Altos de Cazuca, in Soacha, is a community of high level vulnerability, particularly given that is one of the areas which received the most displaced people due to the armed conflict. Marginalization and exclusion has characterized its population, contributing to the lack of opportunities that affect children and young people in particularly, by prematurely living with poverty and violence as their reality. Today, 22% of arts and sports practice are cancelled due to weather and violence.
By providing the community of Altos de Cazuca with the construction of a dome, we will allow more than 1500 children to practice sports and arts away from the violence of gangs, away from natural risks, and away from the dangerous of a community that is recognized as one of the most violent in the suburbs of the capital city in Bogota.
Tiempo de Juego's mission is to spawn social cohesion and development in vulnerable neighborhoods by engaging the youth in sports, culture and technological inclusion. Its pedagogic tools aim to generate competencies, promote values, and enable the use free time in a responsible and conscientious manner, enabling positive and replicable impact in the quality of life of the community and its surroundings. Every year, TdJ improves the lives of 5000+ children in Cazuca, Santa Marta and Timbiqui.
