#OurChildrenAroundTheWorld: Colombia

This month for #OurChildrenAroundTheWorld series, we're highlighting our projects in Colombia! Did you know that Maestro Cares Foundation has four different projects in Colombia? From Cali to Barranquilla, Maestro Cares Foundation has partnered with various organizations to make an impact on children from all ages, ranging from infants and toddlers at Casita de Belen and Internado Monseñor Victor Tamayo to adolescents at Aldeas Infantiles SOS Colombia and Fundación Jeison Aristizabal-Asodisvalle. Learn more about each individual project and follow us on social media as we share updates and stories of our #OurChildren in Colombia! 
Project Updates
Casita de Belen: Phase II Construction 
We are excited to share a construction update of the phase II construction at Casita de Belen! Maestro Cares Foundation, along with Grupo Trusot, funded the expansion of the Casita de Belen orphanage. Through the addition of a third building, caregivers and teachers can continue attending to the children at Casita de Belen with tutoring, arts programs, and all other services offered.

Despite minor delays due to heavy rainfall and local protests, construction for the phase II is nearing 40% completion! In this phase, classrooms, bathrooms, a filing room, therapy offices, additional dormitories and a terrace for recreational services will be constructed.
