Fundación San Antonio (COL-104)

Type: Children - Country: Colombia

Brief description and main aims

Fundación San Antonio aims to offer integral attention to children and teenagers in Bogotá who need it the most and provide them with protection, inclusion, prevention and capacitation for their lives.

Main Activities

We work for children and adolescents in situations of high social vulnerability. In Fundación San Antonio, they can find the opportunity to grow as independent citizens, to build their life project and thus dream of a better tomorrow.
We educate the children and youth of Bogotá, with ethical and Christian values to transform their future and that of their families.
We guarantee their rights, preventing all forms of mistreatment, abuse and psychosocial risks. In this way, our beneficiaries conquer spaces of inclusion through education for life. Fundación San Antonio welcomes children with affection, cares for them with care and educates them integrally.
Our commitment is a contribution to make the Millennium Development Goals a reality in Bogota. We want children to come first, that their rights prevail, that they are not lost in the vicious circle of poverty, that no one suffers hunger and that they do not abandon the educational system.
