The project’s aim is giving the children of vulnerable communities of Santa Marta skills that help them develop and advance their own life’s projects.
The foundation was established 10 years ago in Bogota and expanded to Santa Marta two years ago. Since its foundation in 2006, it has used sport and arts as pedagogical tools for the education of children and teenagers from vulnerable communities.
In Santa Marta the foundation has enrolled about 90 children and teenagers in its workshops and activities in vulnerable communities in Santa Marta. It offers workshops in sport (soccer practice twice a week and it also works with other soccer schools in towns/villages nearby), dancing and music. Through those workshops the foundation seeks to promote and create spaces of peace, equality and conexistence.
Furthermore, the foundation runs a hostel, that is conceived as a training facility for local youth to learn skills and trades related to more sustainable tourism as well as the hotel and service industry. Besides, as a volunteer you have the opportunity to stay at the hostel for an extra cost.
The foundation offers you different work options:
You can support the training and community work of the foundation and work with the children. However, there is also the possibilty of helping with the implementation and strengthening of the hostel initiative.
