Poverty in Colombia

Children growing up in poverty in Colombia face tough challenges, such as gang violence that too often involves children, an inadequate health care system and poor secondary-school attendance.

That's why we focus on programs to help keep children and youth off the streets, provide medical and dental care, and offer leadership programs and scholarships to help teens achieve their dreams.

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