It is essential that our students study and get a clear idea of the diversity of our country´s society in order to understand its conflicts. Only then will they develop a sense of solidarity and recognize that their contribution to our society is essential. To achieve this, over 30 years ago the pedagogical project Del Aula a la Comunidad was created, which constitutes a bridge between the community of San Patricio and that of Barrio la Gaitana in Suba.
Fundación Hogares de Solidaridad of San Patricio
The “Fundación Hogares de Solidaridad” is located in La Gaitana neighborhood in Suba. Its mission is to provide a safe environment that ensures the respect of every childs’ rights and the full enjoyment of them, as contemplated in the Children and Adolescents Act 1098 -2006. Training workshops are provided to mitigate risk factors found in their environment (consumption of SPA, sexual abuse, labor exploitation, school dropout, parental confinement, etc.), and promoting their integral development.
