Project Updates
Tour de Colombia
Earlier this month our projects' team had the opportunity to travel to all four of our projects throughout Colombia! They started off in Baranquilla, Colombia by visiting our orphanage and school, Internado Monseñor Victor Tamayo. They were joined by Co-founder Henry Cardeńas and Rafael Toro representing Goya Foods. They next traveled to Cali, Colombia to visit three of our projects starting with  Casita de Belen, an orphanage that aims to  protects and support disadvantaged children by offering them the opportunites towards a better future. The next stop was Centro de Rehabilitacion, Fundacion Jeison Aristizabal-Asodisvalle. This rehabilitation center features an educational building and a vocational school is under construction and set to be inaugurated this year! The final visit was with Aldeas Infantiles SOS Colombia: Centro de Desarrollo Familiar, this community center serves children and adolescents through teamwork, creativity, and conflict resolution workshops. 

Thank you to all of our project partners for the warm hospitality. We are humbled by our partnership and the amazing work that you do on the ground to ensure that these projects are moving forward and thriving.
