Since 2005, the Pies Descalzos Foundation is betting on building a strategy to promote the empowerment of communities in processes of personal growth and sustainable development. With the support of this program, the Foundation seeks to ensure that each individual be self-sufficient, knowing his or her skills and be able to take the opportunity to contribute to the progress of their communities.
Besides working with students and youth, other support operations such as training, advice, support and funding of local initiatives for income generation led by parents and adults are integrated. The differentiating factor of this component is the continued support to the marketing of products and constant monitoring on site.
- Professional technical education in partnership with the National Learning Service (SENA) for parents and youth.
- Development of the program to strengthen productive units aimed at the commercialization of products in displaced and/or vulnerable communities, which promotes the generation of income.
- Establishment of the "Young Educators" program which encourages the employment capacity of young graduates of the schools through educational companies.
- Training and incorporation of cooperatives with single mothers aimed at the provision of training and food at school centers, as well as the creation of derived businesses (marketing of produce, selling snacks, etc.).
We understand that education is the engine and the key to building a better world, as well as a process that in addition to information, books and content, requires a social and emotional support. For this fundamental reason, we help children to exercise their basic right to quality education, developing support programs for children and their families which offer real solutions to improve their quality of life and development.
