Poverty in Colombia

Kids growing up in poverty in Colombia face many tough challenges, such as a large wealth gap, gang violence that too often involves kids, an inadequate health care system and poor secondary-school attendance.

That's why we focus on programs to help kids stay off the streets, work with local partners to provide medical and dental care, and offer leadership programs and scholarships to help teens stay in school so they can achieve their dreams.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
