Interpedia’s development cooperation and sponsorship programs in Colombia
The conditions of children in Colombia have improved over the last decades, but children from poor families still often live in an unsafe environment. Violence, kidnappings and armed robberies are common in the country. In the absence of daycare, children from rural areas often take part in the field- and housework of their parents. Children from poor families might remain completely uneducated.
Education of girls
Our development cooperation promotes girls’ education in Bogotá. Together with our local partner, we provide the girls with school admission fees, school uniforms and education materials.
Our partner also offers them tutoring, activities in the afternoon and additional vocational training for the older ones.
Our partner organization’s work in Colombia reaches almost 300 girls annually, offering them a peaceful and a caring environment and the possibility to study. Some of the girls also live in the children’s home.
