Venezuelan families- Welcome!

In a response to the humanitarian crisis caused by unprecedented migration from Venezuela we have been able to launch our project in Bucaramanga.

In cooperation with the Lutheran church and Youth With A Mission we run a weekly children’s club for the migrant children giving them a sense of normality and outreach program to their parents offering spiritual counselling as well as providing practical migratory advice: How to enrol your child at school, Where and how to access medical care

62 students graduate from Livelihoods project in Sucre

Over the past two days, we have celebrated the graduation of 62 students from the first phase of our livelihoods project in La Isla, Sampues and Pueblecito, Palmito.

After more than 300 hours of training in the art of cana flecha production by tutors from SENA, there were displays of the beautiful products which have been made by the attendees.

Next year, commencing in February, further training in marketing will be provided to assist all participants in the packaging and sale of products.  We have also begun seeking possible markets for the products, both in the region of Sucre and also internationally - and the next phase will also see the creation of a web page to sell the products online.
