THE STORY:

For nearly a decade, our program has taken in former child soldiers who escape from Colombia's illegally armed guerilla groups, primarily the FARC and the ELN.

OUR PROJECT. 

While living in our 24/7 facilities, these children and adolescents ranging from 12 to 18 years of age develop the skills and education necessary for them to re-enter normal life. 

WHAT WE HAVE BUILT.

We sponsor a rehabilitation and reeducation program for hundreds of minors who have been involved in the armed conflict. At this facility, the children receive psychological counseling; access to primary and secondary education; vocational and technical training in various disciplines such as mechanics, carpentry and graphic arts; recreational activities to improve their socialization skills; and family reconciliation.

YOUR DONATION WILL DIRECTLY FUND.

Funding for an additional psychologist; a portion of the cost of educating and training each child; Family reunification meetings; Computers and technology equipment.  Your contributions will enable a greater number of children to be accepted into the project, while increasing the odds that each child receives the requisite psychological, emotional, and educational support to lead a productive and peaceful life moving forward.
