BENEFITING: Marina Orth Foundation

ORGANIZER: Marina Orth Foundation

EVENT DATE: Jun 11, 2016

THE STORY:

Hello all!

Since June of 2015 I have been volunteering for the Marina Orth Foundation in Antioquia, Colombia.  When I arrived I had no idea what to expect, entering a new and unfamiliar world.  I was picked up at the airport by Foundation staff and since that moment have felt welcomed, valued and part of a family.  I now look to help give back to a Foundation that gave so much to me and continues to give to Colombia.

The Foundation itself works to provide technology, English, and leadership development in Colombia’s Education System and serves some of its most vulnerable populations.  Through my experience I have seen the positive impact the Foundation makes in very difficult education circumstances. 

Currently, the Foundation is experiencing rapid growth.  Over the past year we have added our SparkTIC project: a project funded by Microsoft that serves Ni-Nis(youth between the ages of 18-25 that neither study nor work) in Medellín.  In January, we expanded into a new school serving 500 students and have immediate plans to expand into two more. Most recently, we have begun giving free English classes to all ages in the local community center in El Carmen de Viboral.  When I first arrived here in June of 2015 the team was only 25 employees. The team currently has a total of 42 members. 

The Foundation's expansion is great as it means it is broadening its impact, however it requires more resources.  I ask that you give whatever you can to this project that is improving education and helping to give greater opportunity to underprivileged Colombian youth.

Thank you!
