September 2018 Newsletter


On September 8, 2018 Maestro Cares inaugurated its 11th project with Aldeas Infantiles SOS Colombia-Cali, a Family Development and Community Center where over 300 families and participants of the SOS community can attend training and activities. The center seeks to strengthen families at risk of losing their children. This center will also be a meeting place for young people, where they will have the opportunity to develop technological and computer skills in the informatics lab. This marks the 7th completed project for the foundation, and the 2nd project completed in Colombia. This project was particularly special for our founders, as Henry Cardenas expressed, “For me it is very satisfying to be able to contribute to my hometown with this type of project in benefit of the families in Cali.”

Our founders Marc Anthony and Henry Cardenas, along with other celebrities such as Nacho and Pipe Bueno, were in attendance to this grand opening of Centro de Desarollo Familiar/Maestro Cares/Aldeas Infantiles SOS Colombia- Cali.
