Casita de Belén

Fundación Casita de Belén
Cali, Colombia

Maestro Cares Foundation, along with Grupo Trusot, funded the expansion of the Casita de Belen orphanage by adding a third building. The funding provided has supported larger and better equipped spaces where caregivers and teachers can appropriately attend to the children at Casita de Belen with tutoring, arts programs, and all other services offered.

This new building counts with new dormitories, bathrooms and a recreational space with a synthetic soccer field. An additional 100 infants and toddlers of ages 0-8 who have suffered from abandonment and are in physical danger now call this place home. The project aims to improve the quality of the care provided to the children at Casita de Belen and to increase the capacity of orphanage and school by 40%. The improved spaces positively impact the well-being of the boys and girls participating in the program as well as the staff.

Casita de Belen is a non-profit institution that protects and supports vulnerable children by caring for them and offering them the opportunity to change their condition of life towards a better future.
