EL Choco is a region located on the west of Colombia. It is inhabitied predominantly by Afro-Colombians and other indigenous groups. El-Choco is historically, the poorest region in all of Colombia. Today, 11 out of the 30 municipalities do not have electricty and are forced to cook with fire. Approximately 88% of the population do not even have their basic needs met. 26% live in extreme poverty with persistent issues such as a lack of education, healthcare, basic sanitation, and access to clean water. These issues need to be addressed in order to impove the future of the beautiful place.
El-Choco is in desperate need of help.
People like Nancy Elena have been a beacon of hope for the poor in these areas, but her efforts are limited by lack of resources. She strives to provide the children of El-Choco with a free education and has been doing this through the Kinder Santa Familia that houses over 180 children in extreme poverty.
At The Global Schoolhouse Initiative we have come up with a solution that has and will continue to work. With the help of a literate adult, our H.O.P.E (Host Of Peace Education) helps to teach children how to love and respect themselves through daily positive self talk, to care for creatures and plants and the earth they inhabit. Ultimately, we teach them to be resilient ambassadors of peace, compassion and love. In the most difficult of life conditions, children can choose to give up, surrender and suffer, or they can lern to connect with their inner self learn a new way of critical thinking, and be resileint. However, thy can only do this when guided and supported in the right way.
We know that we can help these children thrive.
Every child deserves an education, and with your help, we can give them one.
