Substitute Home Tutor

In this modality we take in teenagers and young people who are victims of the armed conflict and come from different regions of the country. In Bogota, they live with a foster family that provides them with a caring and protective environment in which they can restore their rights.

For the processes of care and accompaniment, the teenagers and foster homes have an interdisciplinary technical team at the Foundation in areas such as psychology, social work and nutrition.

The objectives we seek are that young people can rebuild their formal and informal links with society and give new meaning to their experiences so that when strengthened, they can resume their life project.

We currently have a capacity to serve 30 teenagers and young people.
