Location

The project is located in Soacha, Cundinamarca. 

Bogotá is Colombia’s sprawling capital and the cultural, economic, industrial, artistic and sportive centre of the country. With its almost 10 million inhabitants it lies high up in the Andes at 2600m above sea level, making it one of the highest cities worldwide and the most populated in Colombia. Bogotá has a great number of universities and libraries and has a broad cultural offer.
 
The municipality of Soacha officially isn’t part of the capital, but the two cities have grown together over time so Soacha is seamlessly integrated in Bogotá’s infrastructure and is served by the TransMilenio bus system.

Hosting Situation (Board and Lodging)

The vlunteer will stay with a host family.
