The Bolivarian Institute is a independent school located in Soacha, Colombia- A low income area south of Bogota. The aim of this Charity is to provide funds toimprove the facilities of the school and also to provide free tuition to the students for three months of the year.
Any human child, regardless of where he or she is from, is worthy of a dignified education where they can strive and build a better future for themselves. Unfortunately, the environment of soacha is harsh and many students suffer from economic, social and familial problems which negatively impact on their studies and hopes for a better future.
Just 5 months ago the school was attacked by a group of armed men with machetes which caused serious physical and psychological injuries to those present. This sort of events are unfortunately common in soacha and deter students from attending the school. We hope that by raising money we can provide better facilities and free tuition that will provide greater incentive to the students to continue their studies and build hope for a brighter future.
