“Colombia is plagued by poverty, violence, and deep hopelessness.
As Christians, we are dedicated to combat Colombia’s cyclical poverty by attacking the root cause: the poverty mindset.”
Colombia continues to be plagued by extreme poverty and violence, and the deep sense of hopelessness that follows. The number of internally displaced citizens are increasing because of guerilla groups and gang violence. In addition, the growing number of Venezuelan refugees coming to Colombia is making it even more difficult to eradicate extreme poverty.
This is why we combat Colombia’s cycle of poverty by attacking the root cause; the poverty mindset!
We help break-away from this mindset through our programs in child protection, education, humanitarian aid, economic inclusion, and family strengthening, to empower people by providing them with the academic, emotional, and spiritual knowledge and resources they need to leave the cycle of poverty behind and become agents of change; leading to community-wide transformation.
Here’s a glimpse of the impact our Friends of Hope sponsors make possible:

Faith in Jesus
We believe in the Holy Bible as the Word of the Living God and apply its principles in all that we do. We believe in the inherent value, dignity and worthiness of every individual; regardless of colour, race, gender, class or religion.
We fight poverty at its root: breaking away from the poverty mindset. We work from the individual to the collective level to empower people to become agents of change and transform communities.

Our COVID response
Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on Colombia, raising the poverty level to 49% of the population and setting the country’s progress back by nearly 10 years.
Please donate now to help us provide food relief, virus-protection kits, and other emergency assistance to thousands of families and precious children at risk.
We need your prayers and support to keep our CDA-God is Love schools up and running to continue providing holistic education and covering the basic needs of those who need it most.
Without your help, thousands of Colombian children are at risk of losing the progress they and their families have made to leave the cycle of poverty behind.
