Challenge

In the southeast of Cartagena, most of the children have grown up experiencing malnutrition, domestic and gang-related violence. The hazardous environment in which these kids have grown up creates a vicious circle that few escape. Why? Severe poverty conditions, deficient access to nutritious food and opportunities as well as lack of parental education and cultural factors of domestic violence have created this serious problem. This project will improve the life of 50 of those kids.

Solution

This project provides nutrition, education, and health to deprive children. The children receive a nutritious meal every day before school and participate in development activities including music, art, hygiene, and a healthy lifestyle. The children's mothers are trained in childcare to reduce domestic violence, and life skills to become self-sustainable.

Long-Term Impact

50 children with adequate nutrition and excellent nutritional status. 50 children participating in musical, arts and bilingual scenarios at the city level. 50 children promoting values and good treatment in the community in general. 50 children coexisting in protective environments characterized by good intrafamilial relationships. 50 caregivers creating business ideas and setting up small businesses in the neighborhood.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
