EL PUENTE ESTÁ QUEBRADO – THE BRIDGE IS BROKEN
The program “El Puente Está Quebrado” was brought to life, when the Mother Herlinda Moises Foundation recognised the problem of the rising number of analphabetic children in Pasacaballos and other community’s in Columbia. So a project was founded in which children get the opportunity to finish their basic school education and get the opportunity to learn how to read, write and calculate. This is how we try to execute the right of a qualitative education and to give them a fair chance to integrate in our society, independent from their background. For more information click here.
ESCUELA MADRE HERLINDA – MOTHER HERLINDA SCHOOL
The Mother Herlinda School was built to give children that come from difficult backgrounds a chance in our society. It is located in one of the poorest community’s in Pasacaballos and currently 100 students have the prospect of education. The Mother Herlinda School is separated in a alphabetization class for children that can’t read and write and a preschool for children from the community. For more information click here.
