Provide a SAFE HOME for Girls in Danger MEDELLÍN (Colombia)

We are a nonprofit organisation that provides a safe home for 20 girls (ages 0-18) in the City of Medellin Colombia. The girls we serve, were at risk of physical and sexual abuse and exploitation due to extreme poverty and an environment which is plagued with prostitution and drug addiction.

Our goal is to provide a safe and loving place for each girl to call home throughout their childhood and adolescents. We aim to help each girl complete their education successfully and have a smooth transition into adulthood, the way any parent would want for their own child.

Currently we rented the house where the girls live, and they will no longer be able to stay in the current house where they reside past November, due to extenuating circumstances. However we found another beautiful Camphouse to rent for the girls to live in a neighboring mountain town of Medellin called Santa Elena.

Items needed: - School Supplies (notebooks, colors, paper ... etc). - Clothes. - Didactic Games. - Personal Hygiene Items.
