Cartagena Colombia, Tutoring Program

What We Do

Cartagena Colombia, Tutoring Program

After living in Cartagena for a year, we were able to really learn and discover ways in which we could help and start to make a difference.  We saw the struggles of the school system and that student to teacher ratios can easily be 40 to 1.  This makes it difficult for teachers to help those students falling behind.  Therefore, students who fall behind, don't have the resources or opportunities to catch up and they eventually drop out of school to help their families in other ways.

In 2015 we partnered with Pan de Vida to start a tutoring program in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Cartagena. After the first year, we already began to see amazing results.  And the impact continues to grow.  The tutoring program reaches up to 50 children and the staff truly invests in them and their families.  These children have a safe place to learn, grow, and people who believe in them.  They have hope.

Mendoza Argentina, PEPE Huellitas Education Program

Marcelo and Veronica started PEPE when they saw the needs in their own community and knew they could do something to help.  Proyecto Escolar PEPE Huellitas' purpose is to provide educational and social support to children and really invest in their development and growth. They directly impact 60 children through this program and that number continues to grow.  On Tuesdays and Thursdays they offer support classes with the help of teachers and volunteers from the congregation. PEPE Huellitas also works with Alimendar Network and Fe en Acción to provide a healthy snack, fruits and vegetables, cleaning products, clothing, and footwear.

This program reaches beyond the children. The families of the students are impacted as well.  They are welcomed, seen, and loved.  This community is working together and growing stronger.  They have hope.

We continue to monitor and research the needs around the world where we can help.  We enjoy learning about other programs making an impact in the areas of education and basic needs and discover potential partnerships.

Education is not the
filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
