Food packages for those who need it.

Low food prices  allow us to feed a family for 4 days for 7,52 USD. In close collaboration with other humanitarian projects and social leader networks in Medellín we constantly identify the need for food aid.

By collecting used goods from local businesses in exchange for a tax-deduction, we save up emergency resources that are distributed to areas affected by floods, fires or landslides.


English education for those who are eager to lear.

By employing a local English teacher assisted by volunteers, we can give 4 weekly hours of English education to local kids for 148 USD / year.

Coming up: School & Community Center

In collaboration with international nonprofit TECHO we plan on opening an community center in one of the invasion zones of Medellín.

An invasion zone is an area where people displaced by the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela or the armed conflict in Colombia flee to. Conditions are amongst the most vulnerable in the city.

The community center will have as function:

  • School for English classes and other forms of education.
  • Community center for local initiatives / workshops / trainings.
  • Point of reference for NGOs and potential donors.
