BUS FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN

Tunja, COLOMBIA

Project Description

At the Amparo Shelter Foundation in Tunja, over 70 at-risk children and youth are nurtured through comprehensive services that address their diverse needs. Residence is full and part-time for boys and girls and includes a population of pregnant girls and nursing mothers between the ages of 12 and 18 years. Shelter, vocational training and academic education with social and psychological services are personalized. Assessment can indicate the need for permanent residence, or the result may be returning to their families, along with home visits and parental education. The institution owns and runs a well-developed agricultural farm that renders skills training for residents and sustains the institution with healthy, fresh organic vegetables, eggs and more. Here, the children and youth can enjoy nature, animals and a pollution-free environment as they grow and develop into well-rounded, happy individuals. The Shelter can no longer use their old vehicle and the sisters require financial support to purchase a new van. At Amparo, the Sisters “save lives and restore families.”
