Project Report | Dec 11, 2018
We've celebrated one year of achievements!

Harvey Milkman validates Tiempo de Juego's model
Harvey Milkman validates Tiempo de Juego's model

On November 20th, Fundación Tiempo de Juego celebrated it's 12th anniversary and had the pleasure to enjoy the presence of Dr. Harvey Milkman, the renowned reseracher that helped Iceland stop teen substance abuse through free time activities.

At our annual fundraising event, we celebrated that in 2018 we were able to work with more than 5.400 children in 20 different cities of Colombia. The work we initially started with 1500 colombian kids at risk has more than triple its impact and has also proven that it can work in new environments such as schools and with teenagers deprived of their liberty.

At Metropolitan State College of Denver, Dr. Milkman was instrumental in developing the idea that people were getting addicted to changes in brain chemistry. "Why not orchestrate a social movement around natural highs: around people getting high on their own brain chemistry? Because it seems obvious to me that people want to change their consciousness - without the deleteriour effects of drugs" (Harvey Milkman, PhD)

Dr. Milkman visited Fundación Tiempo de Juego in Colombia and validated the model that is helping 1500 Colombian kids at risk through football.

We thank the support you've given Fundación Tiempo de Juego this year to be able to provide children and youth with an opportunity to have natural highs through football. We would like to share images of our work. Please enjoy the wonderful work achieved this year here: https://www.facebook.com/FundacionTiempodeJuego/

Thank you for joining Fundación Tiempo de Juego too. The ball keeps rolling!

Football has the power to change lives!
