The foundation Caricias de Sol is a nonprofit organization for kids with disabilities from the Urabá región in Colombia. The purpose of this campaign is to obtain initially enough money to get hiring special personnel to attend more kids.
Your generosity will help us a lot, this is because at the moment there are just 52 children with disabilities in the organization, but just in Apartadó (that is one city within the Urabá region) there are more than 1700 kids with disabilities. So in that way, any cooperation will bring wellness and education to the kids with disabilities.
What we need
We need $26’400.000 Colombian Pesos, it is around $7.300 US dollars. This is in order to hire a specialized teacher for 12 months (salary around ~$2’000.000 COP monthly) and +10% to cover money transfer taxes. There will be special gifts for those that donate more than $100 US dollars, like drawings and videos make specially for them by the kids.
Helping with this project you will be helping a community that has been forgotten in a region that suffered a lot of violence in the past. This way you could contribute to make the world a better place by providing a hand for those that are hardworking to achieve it. We have showed everyone that they do not have disabilities, those "disabilities" are just special abilities.
Other ways to help
You can also help sharing this with your family and friends. Additionally, if you are in Colombia you can contact us to visit us at any moment.
The project at the moment is in a stagnant state, the Covid Pandemic affected hugely the Colombian economy. So the majority of local companies that helped us had to back out of the project. Fortunately, we have been able to adapt easily to the digital classroom and work with a small groups in the school.
